A full colour map of the Birmingham Canal Navigations (BCN) suitable for both waterways and leisure users.
This map gives detailed coverage of the BCN with emphasis on the waterways and information useful and relevant to users of the waterways, without neglecting other leisure users. The map detail is complimented by information panels and photographs.
The Birmingham Canal Navigations helped to power the Industrial Revolution in Birmingham, bringing coal and raw materials into the city and transporting finished goods to other parts of the country and the ports for shipment to the rest of the world.
One of the worlds most intricate canal networks, originally totalling some 160 miles, sadly a significant amount has been lost, but the remaining 100 miles still leave much to see and explore and is reputedly, more than Venice.
Gas Street Basin in the city centre was once the hub of the network, whilst the working boats may have disappeared its still bustling, only now with pleasure craft. The basin is a mixture of both old and new, restored canal buildings, vibrant restaurants, bars and cafés, entertainment venues like the International Convention Centre, National Indoor Arena and theatres, as well as just being minutes from shopping centres and New Street Station.
Other attractions and industrial marvels on the network include the Black Country Living Museum, Red House Glass Cone, the Dudley and Netherton Tunnels, Stourbridge Locks and conservation area, Wolverhampton Locks and Farmers Bridge Locks.
Despite much of the BCN being urban, there are quieter waters to be found meandering through more suburban and rural areas such as the lock free Wyrley and Essington Canal.

Cancellations - non personalised/bespoke items
The Consumer Contracts (Information, Cancellation and Additional Charges) Regulations 2013 (formerly the Distance Selling Regulations) provide consumers with the right to a 'cooling-off' period to allow you to change your mind. Under these regulations, you have the right to cancel your order, without explanation, within 14 days of delivery (starting the day after you receive the goods) and to return the goods for a refund within a further 14 days (28 days in total). The Distance Selling Regulations do not apply to businesses nor to individuals who are trading or acting as a trader (buying goods to re-sell for profit) because no-one is the 'Consumer'. This means there is no 'cooling-off' period and the order cannot be cancelled once processed.

Where an order is placed for an item which is to be personalised or is bespoke, cancellation is not possible once production has started and these are expressly excluded from The Consumer Contracts (Information, Cancellation and Additional Charges) Regulations 2013 (formerly the Distance Selling Regulations).
