Milepost 17 ~ Shobnall to Branston Lock

Link to picture of milepost This is another original milepost and is quite isolated although a new road bridge is currently being constructed over the canal to service the new industrial development. It is found immediately behind the Coors distribution depot (Bass to those with any sense of history).
Link to towpath to Shobnall (1) Upstream of here, the canal passes under the A38. Unfortunately, modern bridge design is nowhere near as appealing to the eye as the old red-brick, hump-backed bridges built when traffic needs were nothing like those of today.
