Warwick Bar Conservation Area
Warwick Bar Conservation Area was designated in 1987 and extended in May 2000. It lies to the east of the city centre.
The conservation area contains the most complete canalside quarter in Birmingham. Its significance derives from a concentration of surviving canal structures, including basins, locks and wharves, together with a wide range of historic canal related warehousing and works.
The area reflects the importance of the canal system in the growth and development of Birmingham trade and industry from the late eighteenth to the mid-twentieth century and the city history as a focus of the waterways.
A Character Appraisal and Management Plan for the area was produced in 2008 and provides a framework for the preservation and enhancement of the character of the area.
A map showing the boundary of the conservation area is below along with the original designation report.
