Staffordshire & Worcester Canal
This waterway is something like a western by-pass of Birmingham. It runs from the River Severn northward by way of Wolverhampton to Stafford and further into the Trent & Mersey Canal. Although the canal flows past large cities it is a quiet, rural canal, part of the Stourport Ring and very popular with leisure boats.
