Birmingham has more miles of canals than Venice. Technically these photos weren’t taken in Birmingham, but in a village in Warwickshire (pretty near). The Grand Union canal passes through Lapworth onto Birmingham eventually ending up in London, and its the longest in the country; stretching a massive 137 miles! I walked a couple of miles through the charming scenery of the Warwickshire countryside, but I think it would be fascinating to see the change in surroundings starting off in the city. I love the natural patterns created from the reflection of the water, dancing across the brick wall of the bridge.
