Little’s Lane Bridge and Wolverhampton Top Lock.

Little’s Lane Bridge, Wolverhampton.

Little's Lane Bridge, Wolverhampton.

The bottom gates of the top lock of the Wolverhampton 21 behind.

As you come up the “Wolverhampton 21”, this is the last lock before Broad Street Basin that I featured recently. The flight is long, but pleasant. Just peeping over the lock gates is the Chubb Building. It dates back to around 1770, with Brindley, Whitworth and Simcock being recorded as the engineers. The top lock, a welcome sight to boaters going up, complete with Little’s Lane Bridge are Grade II listed together.

The canal cottages, hidden from view in this shot, are also Grade II listed, making this quite an historic area!
