Birmingham Canal Navigations
The Anson Branch canal terminates at Reedswood Park, site of an abandoned coal mine.
Anson Branch beside Reedswood Park
The canal remains in water, running along the estern edge of the park and terminating in a large reed filled basin. A short walk to the north reveals a substanbtial reservoir which continues to feed the canal via a large concrete pipe.
The park is surrounded by cast iron railings, which probably date back to the days it was a colliery.
