Notes about this historic site

1 The 1903 OS 25″shows a wharf in this position on the Birmingham and Fazeley Canal.
2 To the west of the canal is a modern wharf and a large flat area; but no obvious canal buildings. East of the canal is a long redbrick warehouse connected to a large redbrick 3-bay, 2 storey house. The warehouse has openings facing the canal; but the house, although contemporary, looks too grand to be simply a wharf house.
