SO 99 NW WOLVERHAMPTON CHILLINGTON STREET Monmore Green 895-1/5/10012 Chillington Wharf Canal-Railway Interchange Basin and Canopy II Canal-rail interchange basin. 1902. Blue engineering bricks wiili stone dressings and steel and timber canopy. 2-span gable-ended roof clad in corrugated asbestos sheets and with boarded gable ends. The long basin is partly covered together with the adjacent sidings by a large twin-span canopy. The ground level around the basin is lower and there is a ramp at the east end of the basin. At the west end the basin is connected by a narrow channel under a towpath bridge to the Wolverhampton Level of the Birmingham Canal Navigation. The canopy has a twin-span roof with timber composite king-and-queen- post trusses on steel lattice girders supported on twelve thin steel stanchions. Chillington Interchange Basin was rebuilt in 1902 by the London and North Western Railway after it had acquired the bankrupt Chillington Iron Company, which was originally served by the basin. It is a rare (possibly unique in Britain) survival of an interchange basin complete with a canopy.
