Timelapse: West Smethwick to Gas Street Basin

Two timelapse films for you today to finish off the fascinating trip we made from Windmill End on the Dudley No. 1 Canal to Birmingham. The first one is only nine seconds long - I don't know why - but does include Telford's Galton Bridge and the Galton Tunnel.



The last part of day nine of our April 2011 cruise is recorded in the following 1'08" timelapse film which takes us under the amazing Engine Arm Aqueduct and on to central Birmingham, just past Gas Street Basin and Worcester Bar. We tied up in front of The Mailbox, just before the right turn to Holliday Wharf.

There appears to be a problem with the second time-lapse video. When viewed through a browser it shows as 'private' whilst through my RSS feed it is 'restricted content'.

Oops, sorry Mike, I think I've fixed it now.

Another set of great videos Halfie :)
I've really enjoyed watching them all, thanks for the time you put in preparing them for us :)

I'm glad you like them, Kevin. I think it repays all the effort they take: setting up the camera in the first place, swapping over charged batteries as necessary, starting and checking the camera every day, transferring files, uploading to YouTube, writing something about them ...
