A different view of Daw End Bridge from the photo taken in April 2007 by Adrian Rothery. The Daw End Branch Canal opened in 1803 to transport coal and limestone from local workings to the Black Country furnaces. It runs from Catshill Junction [[SK0404]] to Longwood Junction [[SP0499]] a distance of 5.25 miles. It being a contour canal, there are no locks along its length. The placename Daw End is locally pronounced as Doe End.
