Wolverhampton Canal Walk
Explore the Birmingham Canal on this short walk through the centre of Wolverhampton. It's a nice gentle stroll taking you past a series of locks, barges and bridges.
The route starts at the Broad Street Basin, very close to the train station. It then heads north, passing some pretty 18th century lock cottages, the Dunstall Railway Bridges and Wolverhampton Racecourse on your left. The route finishes at Aldersley Junction where the Birmingham Main Line Canal terminates and meets the Staffordshire and Worcestershire Canal near to Oxley.
At the end of this short route you have the option of extending your walk along the Staffordshire and Worcestershire Canal. Follow it south and it will take you to Wombourne.
Also near Oxley you can pick up the Shropshire Union Canal. Following it north will take you towards Brewood via the Pendeford Mill Nature Reserve.
