Notes about this historic site

1 The wharves are marked on the OS 25″ of 1905 in the above positions on the Oxford canal at Lower Shuckborough. Each appears to have some associated buildings.
2 Westerley wharf has a two-storey redbrick warehouse. In the entrance is a disused weighbridge marked ‘M&T Avery’ and an office. To the east of this is a second group consisting of a small two-storey redbrick building, possibly stabling, and a large redbrick house possibly also associated with the canal.
