Shrewsbury and Newport Canals

The Shrewsbury Canal once ran from Shrewsbury to Wappenshall Junction where it met the Newport Canal which ran to meet the Shropshire Union Canal at Norbury Junction.

Route covered by my Shrewsbury and Newport Canals Maps.

Branches included the Donnington Wood Canal and the Shropshire Canal ran south to reach Coalbrookdale and Coalport on the River Severn.  I have just released my detailed maps for the Shrewsbury and Newport Canals which, like all my maps for restoration projects are free to download.

The Shrewsbury and Newport Canals are proposed for restoration with lots more information available from The Shrewsbury and Newport Canals Trust.
