Birmingham Canal Navigations (BCN)
New Main Line
Toll islands are a feature of the Birmingham Canal Navigations (BCN). As the boats passed through the narrows the toll collector would use a marked stick to check the depth of the boat in the water to see how heavy the load was so the appropriate toll could be collected.
