Birmingham Level, Smethwick
9/10 Hartley Bridge,
21.7.78 (approx 230m west of Spon
Bridge. Early to mid-C19. Sandstone with parapets partly of brick. Single
segmental arch with voussoirs rusticated in honeycomb pattern. Low parapet
with stone coping. Attached to the western parapet is a cast iron plaque

which was built in a cutting on the Birmingham Level and was opened in 1828.
It formerly linked the northern part of Chance's Glassworks (qv) with build-
ings to the south of the canal which were probably developed from the 1840's
onwards. (VCH p 115).
