In 2016 Lapal Canal Trust made some big strides towards restoring the Dudley No 2 canal.
There was substantial excavation of Harborne Wharf by Careys, a WRG work camp to restore the canal wall. (There is another WRG camp starting on 29 July – see the Diary or the WRG website.)
The ground was laser scanned, so that they can take sections to help estimate the material to moved to restore canal as far as California. (Near Barnes Hill Asda rather than Mexico, for those who don’t know the area)
This was done by Ken Pearson of Laser Scans Ltd.
In addition they got a further £30000 funding for further work from the Headley fund.
Well Done Lapal Canal Trust!
