Brindley Place, Birmingham canal map

Total distance of .75km.

A canal photo trip through an area that was the heart of Britain’s metal bashing industry which showed the world how!

Now the once so successful factories have largely been raised to the ground and the areas redeveloped. In their place are equally successful new ventures such as the Brindley Place estate, the International Conference Centre (ICC) home of recent Labour and Conservative Party conferences, and Symphony Hall – all in the last 20 years.
You then return to the heritage area of Gas Street Basin, now a mooring place for resident boats and an area developed on a more traditional manner than the foregoing – very charming and atmospheric.
