Both Ends (14) : Birmingham and Fazeley Canal

The Birmingham and Fazeley Canal, as the name implies, begins in Birmingham at Old Turn Junction where it meets the Birmingham Main Line.

The canal then travels through Birmingham's suburbs: Aston and Erdington before heading into the countryside. The canal heads into Warwickshire through Curdworth and Bodymoor Heath before finishing up into Staffordshire and the Fazeley area of Tamworth where it connects to the Coventry Canal.
