The Shrewsbury Canal

The Canal near Uffington


Shrewsbury <<-- : -->> Berwick Tunnel, NW Portal


Just west of Uffington was a single-arch aqueduct at Pimley Manor. The arch was removed and a footbridge built to link the former abutments before 1970. The site of the aqueduct is immediately east of where the new A49 Shrewsbury by-pass crosses the line of the canal, and I am not sure what now remains.

There was a wharf at Uffington just west of the site of Uffington Bridge.

The new A5 crosses the canal immediately adjacent to the railway bridge near Berwick Tunnel, on its south side.
