The Canal House, Birmingham
The James Brindley, a central Birmingham canal-side public house vacant for 8 years required teamwork and a visionary client to bring it back to life. The aim, to reconnect the site to its former industrial heritage from its 1980s facelift
Historically the site was occupied by the Old Wharf terminus in the Gas Street basin of the Birmingham Canal where narrowboats picked up and off loaded their goods to continue their journey. This had been demolished to make way for the 1980s pub.
Over a three year period of involvement with New World Trading, Brock Carmichael delivered twelve other Botanist Restaurants around the Country.
