Notes about this historic site

1 At bridge 27 a winding hole is all that remains of an arm which extended to the main road close to Wharf Lane. This was opened to handle local limestone. Wharf cottages can be found on the A34.
2 Wharf arm has been filled in to make a car park.
3 The line of the canal is traceable for approximately half the length of Wharf Lane. The wharf cottages opposite the canal arm are now used by a cruiser hire company, as is the remains of the arm.
