The waterways will generally be found in the same area as they are dealt with in the 'Canals of the British Isles' series by Charles Hadfield and others, except for a few southern waterways that are more logically southwestern.
Several illustrated pages detailing journeys on the Birmingham Canal Navigations and adjacent waterways during the early 1970's can be viewed by clicking here.
During 2015 comprehensive recoding has been taking place to make the site 'mobile friendly'.
This is now complete.

I have given a number of slide shows to waterway societies in the past.
The two main titles I have used are 'Locks, Bridges and Tunnels' (a personal view of the many features to be found on both UK and overseas waterways), and 'The Shrewsbury and Newport Canals' (a look at the two waterways illustrated with both old and recent images, not all shown on my website).
Now living in Lincolnshire, I would be happy to talk to any organisation in the Midlands.
If you wish to get in contact, feel free to mail me at mail me, taking the 'penny' out of this address and please include the word 'canal' in your subject line to avoid your email falling into my spamtrap!
