Fishley Junction, on the Wyrley & Essington Canal, is where the now abandoned Lord Hayes Branch once diverged.
There are proposals to restore the first few hundred metres of this to form the new route for the Hatherton Canal. This canal would take a new route to Cannock before joining the route of the old Churchbridge Branch to reach the Staffs & Worcester Canal at Hatherton Junction.
The Wyrley and Essington Canal passes Pelsall Junction. It runs from Horseley Fields Junction at Wolverhampton to Ogley Junction.
The Cannock Extension Canal runs north for around 2.4 kilometers (1.5 miles). At the time the sign was errected it was proposed to extend this along the Hatherton Canal to link to the Staffs & Worcester Canal at Hatherton Junction. That restoration is now planned to join the Wyrely & Essington Canal at Fishley Junction instead.
