The Stourbridge Canal - Fens Pool


The canal is not navigable above The Leys Junction but the towpath provides a pleasant walk.

The remains of the former Stourbridge Extension Canal which used to run to the long-gone Oak Farm Ironworks near the 'Crooked House' pub can be seen on the north side of the canal.

Across the main road the section of canal is known as the 'Wide Waters' and at its head are the three Fens Pools. The Pensnett Railway Walk crosses the surrounding open space and continues via Hunts Mill to Holbeach where it connects with the Kingswinford Railway Walk which, in turn, passes through Wombourne and on to Wolverhampton.
