Flooding at Wednesbury
Early 18th century circular brick chimney.
One of the crucibles in situ.
Yesterday the site flooded out after a whole day of torrential rain, which gave us some idea of what the sluices and watercourses may have looked like in their original state...
Culvert roofs standing proud of the water, the pre-culvert open water- course returns!
Water flowing through the sluice gates for the first time in a hundred years.
The northern wheelpit full of water.
