Birmingham has more miles of canal than Venice’
Although often disputed and spoken about as though it’s just a wild claim, this turns out to be true. Venice has 26 miles of canal while Birmingham runs ahead with 35 miles. And the entire Birmingham Canal Navigations system – a network of waterways connecting Birmingham, Wolverhampton and the eastern part of the Black Country – has 114 miles of navigable water. Even that is less than the 174 miles it had at its peak in the 18th century.
