A bit more BCN

Just thought I'd take a few more pictures...
This is looking down from the Engine Arm.
Looking at what industries were round here at one time you wouldn't want to fall in here. There is one thing, weed and reeds can't grow here.

At the top of the Smethwick locks there's a board hiding in the bushes giving the history of the place, makes good reading. The picture shows the duplicated locks and if you dig around in the grass you'll find remnants of lock brickwork still there.

This link is full of all sorts of stuff about the area, it's a bit hard to follow. There are 8 sections on the industrial canals.
