Birmingham Canal Navigations (BCN)
New Main Line
The railway builders chose the same straight and level route for the line between Birmingham New Street and Wolverhampton.
The New Main Line of the Birmingham Canal Navigations (BCN) was built with towpaths along both sides so boats could pass in each direction without having to slow down. Both towpaths are there today, although only one is maintained to a high standard.
