Roy Murphy speaks about James Brindley a genius whose engineering skills transformed the economy and society of Worcestershire. One part of his legacy that survives in Worcestershire today is the Staffordshire & Worcestershire Canal. The Staffordshire & Worcestershire Canal runs through the green and pleasant, undulating Worcestershire countryside. It circumnavigates the edges of Birmingham without being engulfed by the city. In the north it connects with the other Brindley masterpiece the Trent and Mersey canal, it enters Worcestershire between Kinver and Wolverley after passing through Wolverhampton. At 46 miles long and 43 locks there is a lot of interest if you take the time to travel it’s length. Come and listen to Roy Murphy as he expands on its impact and legacy.
