Link to post from Shobnall Fields footbridge Further downstream of this post is Dallow Lock, the first of the narrow locks at this end of the canal. The other side of Shobnall Road bridge is Shobnall Basin, home to Jannel Cruisers. This marks the end of what used to be the Bond End canal which gave the breweries access to the canal. On the opposite side of the canal is the Marstons Brewery Visitor Centre.
