This is the canal looking east from below Bromford Bridge No 1 towards Bromford Bridge No 2.

The Birmingham and Fazeley Canal was completed in 1789 having been engineered and supervised by John Smeaton. It linked Birmingham (Farmer's Bridge Junction) with the Coventry Canal at Fazeley Junction. It is fifteen miles in length, with 38 locks. An extension to the north-west along part of the Coventry Canal route to Whittington was added later.
