These are just a very short walk away from Wolverhampton station. (I'm not sure if this is the right section for these photos so mods please move as you see fit).

Wonderful!  I want to do a canal scene on my layout - these pics will be invaluable.  I like the guardrail outside the houses.  I wonder if these are a modern addition (EH&S and all that) or whether these were ther in the day.

John,
they look as though they have been there a while. Even if they weren't the originals there might have been some sort of fence or railings to keep the horses on the towpath! 
Regards
David

Thanks David, probably since at least the 30s then which works for me.

Please pardon the hi-jack, but John, if you look at post 365 here
http://yourmodelrailway.net/view_topic.php?id=3303&forum_id=21&highlight=bear%27s+end+mill
you'll see my take on a sluice gate, the 'winding up and down bit' [a technical phrase...] I did the raising and lowering mechanism with some old Coopercraft axleboxes and the toothed slide I made by squishing [more technicalities...] some plastic strip in the jaws of a big pair of electrician's pliers, hope that helps or give you some ideas...

[Nice piccies again, David]

Thanks Doug, there's a ton of stuff there.  I've bookmarked the link so I can pilfer your good work at leisure.
