New Main Line
A bright April day shows Brasshouse Lane Pumping station in a great light. The Old Main Line runs to the right of the building after climbing through three locks from Smethwick Junction so it is 6.10m (20 feet) higher.
The pumping station allows water used through the operation of the locks to be pumped back to the upper level.
