Typhoo Basin

Typhoo Basin is a short arm of the Digbeth Branch Canal in Birmingham which takes it's name from the 1930s built Typhoo Tea factory which used to operate here on Bordesley Street. The basin is not the most welcoming for boaters (and often locked up out of use). However the site may become a high-tech centre for innovation in a £200 million project called STEAMhouse which will be located in the factory. The wharf as well would spruced up and made a lot more welcoming and visitor friendly.
