Toll End Communication Canal Update - BCN
Update April 2010, Original post 25th October 2009
Whilst there were quire a few structures to see at the eastern end of the Toll End Communication Canal, there was much less to see at the top end as it approached the New Main Line at Caggy's Boatyard.
I was therefore rather pleased to find a 1970's photo of both Lock No2 and Moat Farm Bridge which sat immediately to the east of the railway.

My search for obscure waterways draws me back to the Tipton area time and time again.
So, this short 1 3/4 mile canal with its 9 locks was built in four stages over eight years to service the local mines and industry, until it was abandoned in 1966 and filled in in the 1970's.
