A choice of DVDs following a cruise around the Birmingham Canal Navigations (BCN).We start from Gas Street Basin and Worcester Bar in the centre of Birmingham and pass Old Turn Junction to see the loops of Brindley's Old Main Line and the more direct route of Telford's New Main Line. We progress along the New Main Line to Wolverhampton and the 21 locks which lower us to the summit pound of the Staffs & Worcester Canal at Autherley Junction.We cover the twists and turns of the Old Main Line from Smethwick Junction including the branches - the Engine Arm, Spon Lane Locks, the Titford Canal, the Causeway Green Branch, the Gower Branch, and the northern portal of Dudley Tunnel. We head south to Delph locks through Netherton Tunnel and reach Hawne Basin - and we head north including the Ridgeacre Branch, the Walsall Canal, the Wyrley and Essington Canal to Anglesey Basin, the Rushall Canal and the Tame Valley Canal.We visit both routes to reach Aston Junction - via the Garrison Locks of the Grand Union Canal and the Digbeth Branches, and via the Aston locks of the Birmingham & Fazeley Canal. Return to Gas Street is via the Farmers Bridge Locks.
Like a television programme following the highlights of the cruise, with commentary and background music.The Popular format DVD runs for 60 minutes and includes an information booklet and a fold-out map. It's available on its own or in a combined 2 DVD set with the Bowcam DVD
For a little fun we fitted a forward facing camera to our boat and, with careful editing, this shows a high speed journey along the canal.You see the forward facing view of the whole cruise and not just the highlights shown in our Popular DVD.We've added the distance markers in the top corner of the screen, and location information along the bottom so you always know where you are.The complete journey takes 72 minutes. The Bowcam format DVD is available on its own or in a combined 2 DVD set with the Popular DVD.
The best of both worlds.Many customers ask for both the Popular and Bowcam DVDs so we've put them together in one box. This includes both DVDs, the information booklet and the fold-out map.Save money buying them together, and save on postage too.
