Rushall canal

Time for one more photo shoot this year! I've been wanting to take some photos along the Rushall canal in Walsall ever since i went to Rushall junction in the Summer (where the canal meets the Tame Valley) and today i have achieved that ambition! Photos from Bell Bridge to the intriguing Moat Bridge.

Ice beyond the bridge

Once for loading

One of a number of bays just off the Digbeth canal, once for loading bays perhaps?

Merry Christmas

Xmas dinner was at a restaurant on Broad St so why not take a few pics beforehand? The canal is a little less ice bound than out by my home in the suburbs!

Snow, ice and fog

Merry Christmas to all, i took a few photos along the B'ham & Fazeley near my house earlier. Much of the canal is frozen over and the fog adds to the bleak scene!

At the end of the Wyrley & Essington is this boat yard.

Tame Valley in the murk

As it was very foggy in the midlands yesterday i decided to take some photos along the Tame Valley in the fog, unfortunately by the time i got there the fog was clearing fast but the resulting photos are still pretty murky!

One way ride

Hopefully this conveyor belt system is just situated over the Tame Valley Canal by co-incidence and not because someone is aiming to dump something on top of a passing boat?

Looking down the Anglesey Branch

At Ogley Junction. The branch leads to a basin. No doubt the site for a future expedition.
