SANDWELL MB BIRMINGHAM CANAL
SO 98 NE
Netherton Tunnel Branch
Windmill End, Rowley kings
8/22 South Portal,
Netherton Tunnel, Warrens
Entrance to canal tunnel. Opened 1858. Brick with sandstone keystone.
Round arch has moulded arch band. Flanking walls battered and of concave
plan. Parapet has brick coping. The Dudley Canal was amalgamated with the
Birmingham Canal Navigations in 1846, and the Netherton Tunnel was subsequently
built to improve links between the two systems. It is 3027 yards long and is
unusual because of its late date and because of its width: it has two towpaths.
It was lit by gas and later by electricity.
