Withington to Berwick Wharf
6t July 2010
These rural sections of the old Shrewsbury offer little for the canal hunter.
The canal was repeatedly crossed, but by lift bridges which have all been lost with the passage of 70 years. The line itself is indistinct and the next evidence is in Withington. Bridge 25 still stands and beside it a shallow farm pond exists in what must have been the canal bed. We hoped for more as it snaked past the south of the parish church, but this has been lost beneath a new and very expensive house.
