This photograph was taken on Sunday, looking north from the Giggetty Lane bridge over the Staffordshire and Worcester Canal in Wombourne. Normally this weblog is about the Wom Brook, and latterly, the Kingswinford Railway Walk.
However, in truth, this section of the village represented in the above photograph is still concerned with the Brook-as it actually flows underneath the canal, at a point called the Planks Lane Culvert, re-emerging just before Dickie’s Brook.
Few narrow boaters would realise that as they pass through Wombourne at this point, a brook runs beneath the canal.
Does this make this section of the canal an aquaduct I wonder? Answers please in the comments section below!
