Coventry Canal Walk

61 km / 38 miles

Staffordshire, Warwickshire, W Midlands
The 38 mile long Coventry Canal links Coventry Canal Basin with Fradley Junction near Burton-on-Trent. Construction began in 1768 to transport coal from the North Warwickshire coalfield into Coventry, and the work was completed in 1790. The section between Coventry and Bedworth was central to Coventry's industrial growth, with many of the City's employers located alongside the waterway.

A towpath walk linking the Trent and Mersey Canal Walk at Fradley to Coventry. The Waterways Guide shows information for the Ashby and Birmingham & Fazeley Canals.
