Worcester and Birmingham
Update July 2011
Things have moved on with this aqueduct, which was opened for business about six months ago. During a trip to the new Droitwich Canal I paused and scrambled down the bank to grab the following shots:

And as a bonus this little river aqueduct can be found alongside the new one!
Birmingham is about to get a brand new aqueduct at Selly Oak.
This structure will carry the Worcester and Birmingham Canal over a new by pass at Selly Oak and will involve all sorts of temporary diversions whilst it is being built.
For the time being we can see where it will go from this photo taken by Waterway Routes:
