Asylum Wharf to S of Hatton Hospital

Description of this historic site

Documentary evidence suggests that this was the site of Asylum Wharf, where vessels would have loaded and unloaded goods during the Imperial period. It is located at Middle Lock Bridge, 700m south east of Hatton Hill.

Notes about this historic site

1 Asylum Wharf on the Warwick and Birmingham Canal is reported to be near bridge 53. There are no signs of this on the OS 25″, even though it would presumably be extant at the time of surveying, built as it was to serve the mid 19th century lunatic asylum.
2 No access was afforded the site.
