Both Ends (2) : Tame Valley Canal

The Tame Valley Canal stretches from Erdington where it meets the Birmingham & Fazeley and Grand Union Canals up to Walsall where it meets up with the Walsall Canal.
The beginnings (or end depending on your point of view) are rather inauspicious these days being Salford Junction which right underneath the Gravelly Hill Interchange (Spaghetti Junction) and the first stretch is under various motorways and slip roads.
The canal then stretches through Witton, Perry and Great Barr. There is a junction with the Rushall Canal but after that its straight through to the Walsall Canal at Tame Valley Junction.
