Titford Pumphouse. Round About The Crow and more
Join us for a talk about the Titford Pumphouse by Phil Clayton. Titford Pumphouse is the Engine House on the Titford Canal and head-quarters of the Birmingham Canal Navigations Society. The building is an old beam engine pump house, that has been used for this purpose since the 1850s, initially as a single engine, with a second engine installed in the 1860s. Later an electric pump was used – and we have re-installed one of the old ones beside the pound between locks 1 and 2.
It is still a pump house, with an electric pump in the building, drawing water from below lock 6, out to the grills just by the junction between the Tat Bank canal (and feeder arm) and the Titford Canal.
This evening's talk will be based around Phil's presentation entitled ‘Round About The Crow’. The Crow being the boaters’ nickname for Oldbury locks leading up to the Pumphouse. 
Phil Clayton is a member of Birmingham Canal Navigations Society and a well known local historian.
