This is the spot where dc Michael Swindells was stabbed to death while chasing a suspect in 2004.you will notice one of the local yobs threw a egg at it which i cleaned the next day.
The photo that I was thinking of by Brownhill’s Bob can be seen clicking here
It is further back along the cut, but on your picture the artist was sitting a few yards before the pillar in the canal. This chap had been made redundant from the closures of Industry in the Black Country and as he had time on his hands he tried painting!
I have never managed to find the name, but good luck to him; his paintings were really good and served to record our once thriving industries.
Thanks very much roger, I used a grey grad on this one, a bit of underexposure caused by the setting sun and the usual shed loads of luck!
fantasic picture i would cost a bomb to build that now.best wishes roger
nice set of pictures.well done
it will make it to google earth because no one else has done that area.have a nice week end
