The BCNS aims to conserve, improve and encourage a wide range of interests in the 100 mile network of the Birmingham and Black Country Waterways know as the BCN. The Birmingham Canal Navigations Society (BCNS) was formed in 1968 and has been promoting the areas canal system for forty years. In the early days it fought campaigns against the closure of many canals, but now the emphasis is on restoration and promoting awareness. The BCNS has its headquarters at the restored Pumphouse on the Titford Canal, in Oldbury. At 511 ft above sea level the Pumphouse stands at the highest part of the BCN. Complete with residential moorings and full facilities the Pumphouse is a fine example of the aims and achievements of the Society. The BCNS meets monthly at the Pumphouse for talks by a wide variety of speakers on canals and subjects of related interest. See the Diary for details.
