Narrowboat convoy heading through Brownhills and Walsall Wood today!

The Birmingham Canal Navigations Explorer Cruise is always a real spectacle. Image by the very talented Steve Martin.

Hi folks – it’s a lovely day today (Sunday 20th May 2018) and Brownhills is set to see the passage of a large number of narrowboats on the Birmingham Canal Navigations 2018 cruise.

The boats are headed from Pelsall where they spent the night, through Brownhills to Catshill Juction, up to Anglesey Basin near Chasewater, then back down to Longwood Junction in Aldridge through Walsall Wood.

This is a fantastic waterway spectacle, which drone photographer Steve Martin captured beautifully with his wonderful drone photo set of the cruise visiting Brownhills this time last year – click here to see here.

Thanks to David Hodgkinson for the headsup. You can read more ant the BCN website here.

If you see the tour and take some pics, why not send them in? BrownhillsBob at Googlemail dot com.
