To join the BCN Society, please download and return the BCN Society Membership Form.
If you are a taxpayer, it would be great if you could fill in the gift aid part of the form.
Membership helps support us in our work supporting the BCN, allows you to join in the activities on our historic working pair of boats – Atlas and Malus, and ensures you get a copy of our journal “Boundary Post”.
We welcome contributions to “Boundary Post”. Contact the editor directly or use the contact form below.
Our magazine is called “Boundary Post” because of the distinctive boundary posts were used to mark the limits of the Birmingham Canal Navigation.
We are also on Facebook.
Finally, you are welcome to actually meet us. We welcome guests at our meetings.
The programme is published on the Events Diary tab on the menu.
The meetings are on the first Thursday of the month, with the exception of the summer months, and are held at the Titford Pumphouse at the end of
B69 4NL (Links to Google Maps)
To my taste the best way to get there is up the Titford branch of the BCN, off the Old Main Line. We are at Tat Bank junction at the top of “The Crow” lock flight. The junction is under the M5, and signposted, between Valencia Wharf and Spon Lane junction.
If you want to come by train, Langley Green Station is a few hundred yards away, on the line from Birmingham Moor Street to Stourbridge. Turn right coming out of the station, on to Western Road. Turn left at Tat Bank Road, and left again at Engine Street.
By bus number 128 (Birmingham to Blackheath) goes down Tat Bank Road past Engine Street, and 120 (Birmingham to Dudley) turns off Tat Bank Road at Western Road, before Engine Street, passing Langley Green station. The is probably the quickest bus from Birmingham, but the walk to the pumphouse is a little longer.
(There are changes coming on many Birmingham & Black Country bus services in the new year – so check the details)
