Froghall Wharf

Now a sleepy end to the Caldon Canal, two centuries ago Froghall Wharf was a thriving industrial transport hub, equipped with lime kilns, warehousing and a meeting point for both the canal and railway networks. It is hard to imagine that the wharf was once the busy loading point for limestone brought down the tramways from the quarries at Cauldon Low.

Now the area is a growing leisure destination.

This location can be seen on the following trails:
