Been a can addict for 50 plus years in partic BCN,dont know why Bentley canal always fascinated me.Stumbled on your Canal Vidoe and most impressed. Looked at most of them.

I too dreamed of narrow boat ,started with canoe ,wnet onto Hotel boats and then Birmaingham and Midland Canal Co as boatman in late 60's 70's .

Involved in Black Counrty museum dredging and Titford pools so know every blade of grass up the Crow and Bradley arm.

So sad about Langley mantings as when I left cut and became "civilised I surveyed .for Banks brewery

Had a narrow boat for 20 years and did wqalsall cut ,Bradley arm ,Curley Wurley etc ,Something about BCN that gets under your skin. Literally as I remember MattysPhospherous boats ,ghastly yellow.

Keep Well
