Farmer's Bridge Locks No 6, Birmingham
Farmer's Bridge Locks No 6, Birmingham
The Birmingham and Fazeley Canal joins the Coventry Canal at Fazeley Junction, about fifteen miles away. It has thirty-eight locks, including the Farmer's Bridge flight, the Aston flight, the Minworth flight and the Curdworth flight.

The Farmer's Bridge flight of thirteen locks drops the water level by 81 feet (about 25 metres). Here the locks are descending by tall modern office blocks, all part of the city centre's major regeneration begun in the 1980s. Interesting information regarding this development is available on the BCN Society website here LinkExternal link .
