Canal and disused factory at  Bordesley Junction, Birmingham
Canal and disused factory at Bordesley Junction, Birmingham
At the foot of Camp Hill Locks - Grand Union Canal.
The old main line straight ahead was the Warwick and Birmingham Canal, opened for business in 1800, and approaching the city centre. Off to the right (just out of sight) was the Birmingham and Warwick Junction Canal to Salford Junction, opened in 1844 as a link to the Birmingham and Fazeley and Tame Valley Canals, utilising five locks rather than the thirteen locks required via Aston Junction.

Both became absorbed into the Regent's Canal Company in 1929, then the newly formed Grand Union Canal Company (GUCC) in 1932.

I had hoped for some decent weather for this image, but this was the best I could do in the pouring rain! The dullness does suit the decor!
