Canal approaching Stafford
This shows the Staffordshire and Worcestershire Canal east of Baswich. The canal by-passes Stafford town centre, but an old canal/river link is making slow but steady restoration progress about half a mile ahead.
Staffordshire and Worcestershire Canal

The Staffordshire and Worcestershire Canal was opened in 1772, engineered by James Brindley. It cost a little over 100,000 at the time. It links the River Severn at Stourport to the Trent and Mersey Canal at Great Haywood Junction in Staffordshire. There are 43 locks (45 if you don't fancy the deep wide locks at Stourport) and the canal is 46 miles in length.
