Dam wall, Edgbaston Reservoir
The reservoir was created in 1827 by Thomas Telford to supply water to the Birmingham Canal.
Birmingham Canal (BCN Main Line)

The Birmingham Canal was built from 1768 to 1772 by James Brindley from the then edge of Birmingham, at Paradise Wharf (also known as Old Wharf) near to Gas Street Basin to meet the Staffordshire and Worcestershire Canal at Aldersley, near Wolverhampton. The canal was upgraded and straightened by Thomas Telford between 1824-7.
The canal forms part of the Birmingham Canals Navigation, a network of canals in and around the city.
