This short arm that once led to the tea warehouses of the Typhoo company is actually the "straight ahead" at Proof House Junction where the main through route takes a sharp left turn towards Warwick Bar. Two locals shouted out to remind us to turn left and were somewhat nonplussed when I replied we were going straight on. "But it doesn't go anywhere....." (Actually that's the point!)
|Starting down the Typhoo arm|
|Typhoo Basin: I was there!|
Coming this way, the turn onto the Birmingham and Fazeley at Salford Junction is very tight and judging from the sign not everyone makes it!
|I had a metre to spare!|
|I'm not going out there!|
