Gas Street Basin (Birmingham)

The Inspiration:

(freehand and painted in oils)

Walking along the towpaths of Birmingham’s canals I came across this scene.

This is where the Birmingham Canal Navigation meets the Worcester and Birmingham Canal.

Looking towards Brindleyplace.

This area called Gas Street Basin was redeveloped in the 1990s.

Filming for the  TV program Crossroads took place in this location along with Take Me High, starring Cliff Richard.
