Old Canal Arm.

Old Canal Arm by Wolverhampton Top Lock.

Now in use for moorings.

At the moment, I can still get out – not least because we have the dog to walk! This is essentially in our back garden anyway, as we are moored up just behind where this was taken. This is just a bit further forward from yesterday’s photo of The top of the Wolverhampton 21. The first lock (with a boat rising in it) can be seen just on the right. To the left is the remains of an old canal arm – one of many around the system.You can just make out a bricked up bridge behind the moored boats. The arm continued a little way beyond this. It would have been used by a local business as a terminal to load and/or unload boats. Some of these former lines can be followed more easily than others. Google Satellite view often makes it easy. Sadly, this one has been filled in and is now part of a car park. There is many an old canal arm (some longer than others) that are now used for long term moorings.
