Heron Map – Birmingham Canal Navigations

This comprehensive Heron Map of the Birmingham Canal Navigations (BCN) provides detailed coverage of the waterways, with relevant information for both waterway and leisure users. The map is enhanced with informative panels and photographs to enrich the user’s experience.

This tourist map of Birmingham Canal Navigations boasts an extra-large scale of 1:30,000 and a detailed town plan of Central Birmingham at 1:10,000. It provides vital navigation and historical information, including visitor moorings, marinas and boatyards, boat hire centres, facilities for the boat user, sailing and boat clubs, shops, post offices, and distance markers. In addition, it caters to tourists by highlighting tourist information centres, places of interest, pubs, nature reserves, parks, gardens, and open areas, churches, national cycle routes, long-distance paths, public toilets, youth hostels, and towpath access points.

The Birmingham Canal Navigations played a crucial role in powering the Industrial Revolution in Birmingham by transporting coal, raw materials, and finished goods to other parts of the country and ports for shipment worldwide. Although the network has shrunk significantly, with only 100 miles remaining out of the original 160 miles, it still offers plenty of sights and exploration opportunities.

The BCN is now also home to one of the best and largest open air museums in the country, the Black County Living Museum.
