Engine Arm Aqueduct
Photograph taken on: 8 June 2002. (Larger image)
This aqueduct, located in Smethwick near Birmingham, is said to be the most beautiful of all the small aqueducts in Britain. It is a cast iron arch bridge designed by Thomas Telford and constructed during the period from 1827 until 1830. Engine Arm stands for "the Arm (branch line canal) that connects the Engine (Smethwick Pumping Station) to the main line"; through the Engine Arm water is supplied from, or sometimes drained back into, the Edgbaston Reservoir.
