Wolverhampton's Listed Buildings

Canals and Railways

Note: there is an extensive literature on these canals, both books and articles; and there are some films and videos too. Some important volumes are:

Charles Hadfield, The Canals of the West Midlands, David & Charles, 1st. edition 1966
S. R. Broadbridge, The Birmingham Canal Navigations, Vol. 1, 1768-1846, David & Charles, 1974

A very useful guide for details on the BCN is:

Alan Codling et al., Birmingham Canal Navigations: a Cruising and Walking Guide, Birmingham Branch of the IWA, 1984
