Soho Branch Junction

The Soho Loop of the Birmingham Canal Navigations passes the junction for the Soho Branch.

Entering the Soho Branch

The Soho Branch is mostly used for permanent moorings these days, with a narrow channel still available for the occasional visiting boats.

Moorings on the Soho Branch

There are visitor moorings part way along the Soho Branch but there is no external access from these moorings. It’s impossible to leave the boat to go shopping or out to the pub, for example.

Arms off the Soho Branch

Once much longer and serving wharves and warehouses there are still two arms branching off to the right of the Soho Branch.

End of Soho Branch

The short Soho Branch runs from its junction with the Soho Loop to the terminus at Hockley Port.
