Birmingham Canal, Old Line :: Shared Description

The Birmingham Canal was built between 1778 and 1782 as a contour canal with a sinuous course as a result. When the New Line was created by Thomas Telford in 1824-7, many sections of the original canal were retained as they still provided vital access for local industries.
