Canal Trust: Guided walk this weekend!
The Lichfield and Hatherton Canal Restoration Trust is holding a guided walk on the Summerhill section of the restoration project this coming Saturday, 21st April 2018.
Join us for a guided tour of the Summerhill section of the Lichfield Canal. See the huge progress we’ve made this year, with help from corporate volunteers from all over the country, as well as our own volunteers. Find out what’s next in store for this section.
Starting at The Boat Inn, we’ll walk up to the aqueduct and then back to the pub where you’ll be able to buy a hot drink (or something stronger) to warm up.
This is an easy access walk but due to the distance (approx 2 km), it is not suitable for people with mobility issues.
There is no charge for this event, but a donation would be appreciated.
Please make sure you wear suitable footwear as it could be muddy.
