Blews Wharf - BCN

Blews Wharf
Lost arm on the BCN
February 2013

Following a question by a friend I discovered the whereabouts of Blews Wharf which set just above and to the north of Aston Junction and Aston Top Lock.

See here for today's Google Earth image:


There isn't much to be see on the ground today, just a  raised towpath but behind this lump there was an extensive basin and wharf. Today's road layouts are unchanged allowing you to place the basins with some accuracy.

Cheers Andrew.
If you look at the 45% view on google maps there appears to be a bridge which is too far to the north west to be the entrance. Any ideas about that?
