Lichfield and Hatherton Canals Restoration Trust

Lichfield’s canal trust is on target to complete the creation of a wetlands area as part of its plan for a nature reserve at Fosseway Heath.

In the past two weeks, 2,500 tonnes of clay and sandy soil have been moved to build a 100 metre diversion of the Lichfield Canal channel and towpath, a team of volunteers from Network Rail have built 57 metres of new towpath, and a boardwalk is taking shape through the wetlands area.
