Notes about this historic site

1 There is a building marked on the 1926 6″ OS map as ‘Canal Cottage’.
2 Presumably this is a lengthmans cottage. It appears to be oriented towards the line of the old canal but must have been retained after it was straightened. The winding hole opposite appears to be part of the old canal line.
