It is in between Five Ways and University. About a 10 minute walk from University Station. If you turn left out of University station and then left again down on to the canal keep walking, you will go through one bridge and the next bridge after has steps to get off the canal. I was on those steps but the fence there is fairly low so you can stan on the tow path as well

...its from the steps off Somerset Road dropping onto the canal. Its visible in this phot... http://www.redcow.fotopic.net/p29770278.html
Approx 10mins (if that) walk from University station heading back towards Five Ways/Birmingham.

This phot is also in the area, ten minutes further along the canal towards Five Ways, immediatly next to Church Rd tunnel.

Matt,nice phots. Did you go for G21?

Matt, I notice you photograph on New Street, do you get any trouble from the over zealous staff or is it ok? Haven't been on the platforms to photograph since about 1985

I have never had a problem at New Street although other people seem to have had problems. Maybe I am just lucky when I am there
