Post Subject: Gas Street Basin

Hi All, We are soon to take a cruise into Birmingham and Gas St; Basin, this will be done clockwise, i.e. travelling up the T&M, left at Fradley onto the Coventry, right at Fazeley onto the B&F canal,from about Mimworth can any one recommend any good "safe" moorings between here and Gas Street which we can use that's with in a day's cruising to get us into Gas Street, Thank's, Alan

This is one for those with local knowledge. We stopped in the middle of an industrial area as far away from access to the towpath as possible. We had a quiet but not very scenic night. Tony Brooks

From my home mooring at Hopwas on the Coventry Canal it is an easy 12 hour cruise to Birmingham which I do in two stages, 6 hours to Curdworth then another 6 hours to Brum.In my opinion the last suitable mooring before Birmingham is just through Curdworth Tunnel at Curdworth. (there is a very handy pub that does meals a 100 yards away!) From Curdworth it is a 6 hour run into Birmingham. Personally, I would always more at Curdworth and would definitely not more anywhere in the Minworth area. Hope this helps
