Portway Branch

The photo was taken from the first boat navigating the Portway Branch after extensive dredging of the Titford Pools by the Canal & River Trust.

Notice the blue brickwork on the left that had been buried for many years.

The Portway Branch was abandoned in 1960. Two IWA rallies were held (1978 and 1982) to draw attention to the Titford Pools.

Are there any further, perhaps even historic, photos of the Portway Branch? We would love to publish them!
