Norton Canes

Accessible to all craft kept on the connected inland waterways

Silver Propeller Challenge


North Lanes

Visit Norton Canes on the Cannock Extension Canal by boat or canoe.

This part of the BCN is very little used which is why it has been chosen as a Silver Propeller Location. A photo of your boat at the end will be a good proof of your visit. From Pelsall Junction the canal now runs for 1.8 miles to Norton Canes dock. Being straight it provides a contrast to the curly Wyrley and Essington Canal. There is no actual winding hole at the end but the canal is quite wide enough for most boats to turn; it is however tricky with a full length boat as the dock entrance needs to be used to gain the extra width.

Complete our challenge by visiting 20 locations from our list, you will receive our exclusive plaque and goody bag.
