Birmingham and Fazeley Canal
The Birmingham and Fazeley Canal's original purpose was to provide a link between Birmingham and the south east of England, by way of the Coventry Canal and the Oxford Canal. John Smeaton was the engineer, and the canal was completed in 1789. The canal now runs from the BCN Main Line at Old Turn Junction, Birmingham to the Coventry Canal at Fazeley Junction, just outside Tamworth. The length is 15 miles (24 km), and it includes 38 locks. There is also a short branch to Digbeth, Birmingham. A further extension was built along the planned course of the Coventry Canal as far as Whittington. Information from Wiki LinkExternal link .
