A Short Walk along the Birmingham and Fazeley Canal Between Newhall and Livery Street

Starting at the Newhall Street Bridge and tunnel and heading east will take you down to where the canal passes under Brindley House. From here you eventually reach the tiny tunnel under the Livery Street Road Bridge and immediately into the cavernous Livery Street Rail Bridge Tunnel. A spiral staircase will take you back up onto Livery Street.

To start the trail, take the steps down from Newhall Street to the canal towpath. Alternatively join the canal from Fleet Street by crossing the bridge opposite the Michell's and Butler building.

Here's the canal as you emerge underneath Brindley House.


Here we look back at the tunnel under Ludgate Hill.


This is the much smaller Livery Street Road tunnel which sits directly alongside the cavernous rail tunnel.


Here we looki back from the Liver Street road tunnel.


Now we emerge into the massive rail tunnel.


Here there is a spiral staircase up to Livery Street.
