The Birmingham Canal Navigation Society has now become corporate member of the Lapal Canal Trust. This allows LCT to access far greater skills required in the future, and it definitely creates a more professional feel to future funding applications.
LTC received a donation of £20,000 from the Unite Group, their “Battery Park” block of students flat is just next to Selly Oak Junction, where the to-be-restored Lapal Canal meets the Worcester & Birmingham Canal. Details can be found in the document below!
This writer did a virtual tour, for LTC, of the planned route of the Lapal Canal, from Battery Park almost to Coombeswood. It might be added to this website if there’s interest.
