Birmingham Canals

brum2

For an excellent pictorial overview of the history of  Brirmingham’s watery heritage there is no better resource than Ray Shill’s Birmingham’s Canals, published 1999 by Sutton Publishing Ltd., but still valuable. Valuable, but perhaps not quite a valuable as advertised on Amazon at the time of writing: one new £4,477.55. Fortunately, there is a more comfortable alternative: ten used from £1.85.
