Brewood Canals In Brewood the main water way is a canal called The Shropshire Union canal. It runs through Brewood, near the centre. Lots of boats run along this canal and sometimes some of the people that live on the barges stop at Brewood and have a short holiday there. It is sixty-six miles long! The canal is man-made. The canal is surrounded by trees! But there is one side of the canal that you can walk along. Because the canal is surrounded by trees it is usually quiet and peaceful. Apart from other walkers and the occasional passing boat. The path on the side of the canal is called the towpath. It was built because in the past the boats didn’t have engines, so they tied the front of the boat to a horse, that would walk along the toe path. And pull the boat!
Perton Lakes There are several different types of birds on the lakes, such as: swans, ducks, Canada geese, herons, moorhens and occasionally more! Above is one of the Perton lakes. It is the upper lake. This lake has an island in the middle and is located near a small area of shops and park. The lower lake is situated by a main road, near a pub. The lower lake does not have an island in the middle. To the right is the lower lake. Both lakes are man made. They were made because before the houses on Perton were built, Perton was just a big air field. But it was very wet in this area, so people built this lake to hold all the water. After a while, no one used the air field, so they built the houses. But they never got rid of the lakes.
Brewood Church Brewood church is nine hundred years old! It is made of stone and has a tall steeple. It has a large graveyard and inside the church it has several tombs. This church is called St Chads and St Mary's. The church in Brewood has huge stained glass windows. Like all churches, St Chads and St Mary's church faces the east, to remind us were Jesus was born. Unlike all other churches Brewood church has two fonts, because some one stole the one font they had at first so they bought another one. But about a year later someone discovered the font in their back garden, it was been used as a bird bath! Any way, the person that had found the font in their garden brought it back to the church. So now they have two fonts. In Brewood church there is an organ, Which is played every week in services. You play it with your hands and feet!
