The book is long out of print, but there’s loads more pictures than I feature here, so please do grab a copy if you can find one.
It’s hard to appreciate now just what a bad state the canal was in when I was a child, and the huge strides made – much of it by volunteers – to gift us the clean, peaceful waterways of today.
The book features a great map of the BCN network as it stood on publication and I posted that yesterday; you can see that post by clicking here.
The Birmingham Canal Navigations Society still exist of course, and in 2019 are to take on the organisation of Brownhills Canal Festival – more on that to come soon.
You can visit the BCN website here. They have some great history.
If you have any comments to make, please do – either here on the post or mail me – BrownhillsBob at Googlemail dot com. You can of course, find me on social media too.
