Canals in Birmingham add up to over 100 miles, some saying that Birmingham has more canals than Venice. Ok, the quantity might not beat the quality of Venice but Birmingham's canals were the life-blood of the Victorian industrial era.
Today they are mainly used for pleasure with people exploring the waterways between Birmingham, Dudley and Worcester at their own leisurely pace.
