Semi-elliptical arch with plat band above and pilasters at ends

Worcester and Birmingham Canal was authorised in 1791. With
Thomas Cartwright as the engineer work began at the Birmingham
end in 1795 and completed to Tardebigge in 1807. In 1809
Cartwright was replaced by John Woodhouse, who built a lift
instead of the proposed flight of locks. Trials for the lift

Rennie's advice. In 1812 construction commenced on this section
of the canal and the Tardebigge flight of locks (q.v.).
