Birmingham is the principle large town of the Birmingham canal navigation system. The waterways were responsible for the development of much of the industry of the city and in the past brought much prosperity to the town. Today the city centre hosts one of the most regenerated waterfronts to be found anywhere in the world, with major international venues lining the once unknown water route. In this video we approach the city from three different directions and examine what there is to be seen along the routes, using archive views to relate the rich history of these navigations. After an extensive look at the loops and branches of the city we leave along the Worcester Birmingham Canal to reach the Northern Stratford Canal at Kings Norton.

Special thanks to Bob May and British Waterways without whose help this video could not have been produced.
