Waterway's place in Shropshire :
A river navigation of over 2 miles from Upton Forge, Shropshire, to the River Severn between Shrewsbury and Wellington.
Used before 1757, when the Tern Forge that it served was closed, and may have been used until 1797 when part of its entrance lock to the Severn was removed.
