BYWASHES

Canal Boat - - Feature -

Sim­i­lar to run-off weirs ( see be­low), bywashes were over­flows built at many locks to carry sur­plus wa­ter around the lock. And sim­i­larly, they come in var­i­ous shapes: most are a sim­ple weir lead­ing to a culvert or chan­nel around the lock, but some canals fea­ture un­usual de­signs such as this cir­cu­lar one on the Stafford­shire & Worces­ter­shire Canal.
