Having crossed a featureless field the line of the canal emerges onto the periphery of the M6 Toll Motorway through the site of Lock 8. This Lock sat within an area which is marked out ready for restoration, although the chamber itself is gone as far as I could tell.
Ogley Locks flying aqueduct
Then the canal throws itself off a cliff so to speak, launching itself into the void created by the motorway cutting. The construction of the motorway could have been the last nail in the coffin of the Ogley Locks restoration but LHCRT manged to install an aqueduct which now stand as a silent statement of intent of things to come.
From a historical perspective this is, of course, a completely non authentic structure but given its significance I have given it a complete post of its own.
Site of lock 8
Beyond the aqueduct the canal twists round to the South East behind a quarry and on to The Boat pub, but its line is inaccessible.
