From Graces Guide

Jump to: navigation, search

This is a skewed cast iron and brick aqueduct carrying the Anglesey branch of the Wyrley and Essington Canal over the former trackbed of the South Staffordshire Railway line from Walsall to Wychnor Junction. It is very similar to the 1856 Birchills Aqueduct, whose castings were produced by Lloyds, Fosters and Co.[1]
