Calf Heath Aqueduct

Calf Heath Aqueduct

This aqueduct goes almost unnoticed from the canal, with just four small crenelated "turrets" marking the corners atop a high stone wall.

Captain Ahabs own collection

The river flowing under it is a tributary of the Penk, but I can't identify its name. In times of heavy rain it quickly turns into a torrent and this is certainly more than a mere culvert.

Getting a good vantage point is tricky, but possible from the end the grounds belonging to Calf Heath Marina, aka Mistys. I will post a better photo taken in the winter, when the leaves of the weeping willow have fallen.
