Description:An old water conduit unearthed during roadworks on Lichfield Road.

The lock-up can be seen on the left, used to temporarily detain local drunks and vagrants.

The public house is the White Lion.

Both buildings were demolished to make way for the Queensway ring road in the 1970s; the lock-up was re-erected nearby.
