Bulls Bridge to Horsenden 2 - Rural London; North Side.
Clockwise from above, signpost at the Bulls Bridge junction, The Nestle Factory in Hayes as seen from BB, a chunky Railway Bridge crossing the canal past Southall, canal boats and factory chimney also near Southall.
Previous page features a Mosque and the factory chimney as shown above left plus some Seagulls, all photoshopped to death of course :-)
The stretch of canal that emerges at Bulls Bridge in Southall is known as the Paddington Arm. I am not sure when it was built but presumably in the mid C19th. The canals purpose was to link the Regents Canal at Paddington and the Grand Union at Southall and there on the Thames at Brentford and Birmingham in the other direction. There is still some traces of industry along the route although it is a fragment of what once was and I imagine little or no industrial traffic now uses the canal? One of the more famous sites that existed along the route was the Lyons Coffee factory between Southall and Greenford. Still in place is the giant Nestle plant in Hayes pictured above.
