Take the full article for some stunning images of this great historic Jewellery Quarter building to be found on Great Hampton Street.

A Short Walk along the Birmingham and Fazeley Canal Between Newhall and Livery Street

Post image

One of the most interesting stretches of the Birmingham and Fazeley Canal can be found in the City Centre between the Newhall Street Bridge and the Livery Street Rail Bridge, unless you are somewhat claustrophobic! Mind your head and enjoy a great urbanscape away from the bustle of the Jewellery Quarter.

A gallery of photos along this route on 27th July is in the full article.

Related

Starting at the Newhall Street Bridge and tunnel and heading east will take you down to where the canal passes under Brindley House. From here you eventually reach the tiny tunnel under the Livery Street Road Bridge and immediately into the cavernous Livery Street Rail Bridge Tunnel. A spiral staircase will take you back up onto Livery Street.

To start the trail, take the steps down from Newhall Street to the canal towpath. Alternatively join the canal from Fleet Street by crossing the bridge opposite the Michell's and Butler building. 

 

Looking down the tunnel under the Newhall Street Bridge.

 

Looking back the other way (west).

 

Here's the canal as you emerge underneath Brindley House.

 

Here we look back at the tunnel under Ludgate Hill.

 

This is the much smaller Livery Street Road tunnel which sits directly alongside the cavernous rail tunnel.

 

Here we looki back from the Liver Street road tunnel.

 

Now we emerge into the massive rail tunnel.

 

Here there is a spiral staircase up to Livery Street.

Photography by Daniel Sturley.

We hope you enjoyed this trail created with the help of our great Birmingham community.

Did you know?

Cobb's Engine House - an Historical Gem!

Post image

Did you know that the original steam engine that was once housed in this building is now at the Henry Ford Museum in Detroit, Michigan. The complex is actually called the Windmill End Pumping Station and was used to pump water from over 500ft below up to the canal. Here is a small photographic study of this very historic building in the Bumble Hole area of Netherton, Dudley.

One way to get to the Cobb's Engine House is from the south-side tow path off the Dudley Number Two Canal by the Cobb's Engine Bridge up a steep flight of steps just before the south entrance to the Netherton Tunnel...
