About The Camp
Where is it?
On the southern outskirts of Lichfield, Staffordshire.
What will I be doing?
Our job for this summer is to construct 300m of new towpath through a canal-side copse as part of the Darnford Moors Ecology Park. The path will be made up with timber edging and a compacted stone infill. Contractors are currently on site building the canal channel and it is expected that we will also get to work on this section once they have completed their works.
WHY IS IT IMPORTANT?
This length of canal is due to be affected by the HS2 railway which will now provide for the construction of a new length of diverted canal, and an HS2 nature and community remediation fund is providing a grant towards restoring the canal and creating a nature trail and ecology park.
