Sit back and enjoy a video journey along some of the most enchanting waterways in the West Midlands. The Coventry Canal is often looked upon simply as a through route between North and South. This video shows it to be a most attractive canal, worthy of a visit as a canal destination in its own right. It’s surprisingly rural and there’s plenty of interest to see, from the fascinating story of hatting in Atherstone, to the heartland of Britain’s Motor Engineering heritage around Coventry. British Waterways, Coventry City Council and volunteer groups have transformed the once weed infested waters and black cinder towpath into a pleasant linear park, with clean cruising waters, exciting modern sculptures and superb information panels. Imaginative lighting, and regular patrols are effective in detering vandals.
