The navigable stretch of the Birmingham and Fazeley Canal is 24 km (15 mi) long with 38 locks, and connects the Birmingham Canal at Farmer’s Bridge Junction to the Coventry Canal at Fazeley. It was constructed in the late 18th century to provide a link between the Coventry Canal and Birmingham, which would result in Birmingham being connected to London via the Oxford Canal.
It is relatively short in canal terms, and is used primarily as a linking stretch. It forms part of the Warwickshire Ring. The towpath has been resurfaced for easy walking. Fishing on the canal is managed by Birmingham Anglers Association and where to fish is detailed on their website – no night fishing is allowed, though.
