Warwick Bar Stop Lock and Banana Warehouse
Warwick Bar Stop Lock and Banana Warehouse, taken 5 years ago
The Warwick Bar stop lock joins the Digbeth Branch of the Birmingham Canal Navigations (behind the photographer) and the Warwick and Birmingham Canal (later the Grand Union Canal). The stop lock was installed to separate the water systems of the competing canal companies, while still allowing boats to pass. LinkExternal link

The adjacent Banana Warehouse with its overhanging canopy is so named as it was once owned by Geest. Both are grade II listed. LinkExternal link
