Coventry Canal Basin :: Shared Description

The Coventry Canal is a navigable narrow canal in the Midlands of England. Which starts in Coventry and ends 38 miles (65 km) north at Fradley Junction, just north of Lichfield, where it joins the Trent and Mersey Canal. It also has connections with the Oxford Canal, the Ashby Canal, and the Birmingham and Fazeley Canal.

The canal starts at Coventry Canal Basin. The unusual, Y-shaped basin was initially constructed and opened in 1769 and later enlarged to its current form in 1788. It is situated just north of Coventry City Centre and just outside the city's inner ring road. Many of the buildings and the site were restored between 1993 and 1995. A footbridge over the ring road gives pedestrians access from the basin to the town centre.
