Birmingham Canal Navigations Map

Birmingham Canal Navigations Map

by: Heron Maps
This folded tourist map of the Birmingham Canal Navigations shows the entire network in full colour highly detailed mapping at a scale of 1:30,000. In addition, there is a detailed town plan of central Birmingham at 1:10,000 scale. This waterway network meanders from Birmingham to West Bromwich, Dudley, Walsall, and Wolverhampton, providing fascinating insights into the Black Country industrial heritage and some peaceful green corridors which can be explored on foot along the towpaths.

The map is primarily aimed at the boat user but there is a wealth of information useful to walkers including the towpath shown clearly as a red dotted line. Other tourist Information includes crossing points, tourist information centres, places of interest, pubs, shops, post offices, nature reserves, parks, gardens and open areas, churches, long distance path intersections, public toilets, and youth hostels.

The map is printed on both sides and folded into 8 panels. There is an informative short history of the canal network, some colour photographs, and notes on canal features of interest. To anyone wishing to explore an alternative perspective of the West Midlands on foot this map is a really useful source of information to have in your rucksack and definitely worth its modest cost.
