Henwood Mill, Barston, Solihull was constructed in the 18th century and altered in the 19th. It is a Grade II listed building and has since been converted into a private house. The feeder leat was cut from the River Blythe which crosses Henwood Lane by way of a ford just below the mill.
Birmingham boasts not just many miles of canals but many types of bridge. Pictured here are four old and new bridges looking towards Farmers bridge on the Birmingham Main Line. The bridge on the right crosses the Oozell Street Loop which was part of the original Birmingham Main Line surveyed by James Brindley.
