Tim's One Photograph a Day

Windmill End Junction, Dudley No 2 Canal.

Windmill End Junction.

Windmill End Junction, Dudley No 2 Canal.

Turning towards Hawne Basin.

Yesterday’s photograph was taken from the top of the bridge on the right, looking towards where the boat is heading. Straight ahead is the Netherton Tunnel and, to the left, is the Boshboil Arm (or Branch, depending where you look!). Behind, the canal heads to the delightfully named Blowers Green, where it joins the Dudley No 1 Canal and onwards to the Stourbridge Canal. This is Windmill End Junction, on the Dudley No 2 Canal.

We can also see the remains of the Cobbs Engine House, which pumped water out of the coal mines that were here. Today, this is the Bumble Hole Nature Reserve, with Warrens Hall Reserve in the distance. A far cry from the industrial scene that caused the canals to be built in the first place.
