BCN Society and BCN 250

Featured Posts

Formed in 1968, the BCN Society has on many occasions promoted the history of the Birmingham Canal Navigations as well as arranging a host of boating events, the most recent being the 24 hour challenge.

 

2019 is their 51st year and the celebration of that long ago opening, November 6th, 2019, is another event being planned.

 

Over time the society has been involved in clean ups and the Titford Canal restoration.  The following image was taken on the Titford Canal when considerable help was given by Warley Borough Council. Any guess as to what was going on?

An early Banksy trying to raise some funds for the BCN by painting an image in a difficult to reach place that has since been removed to go in to a private art collectors collection.

Well I was expecting a comment about a BCN Krypton Factor, but the caption in the 25 years of the BCN in Boundary Post then edited by Kevin Maslin suggested painting canal side structures- this one being evidently by the Pump House.

Painting in very large words - Downhill boats move to side when crossing.....

Looking at the photo he was a lucky boy, or maybe not depending on the next photo. Ladder rungs are not designed to take weight in that direction as a kid I managed to break some, and the far style is hardly on the bank by the look of it. Is there a second photo showing what happened next?

The rungs will be fine, it's the rails that are at risk

You're right, but good luck staying on a rung once the rails have given up! :D
