About the branch

We help to protect and restore waterways in the Lichfield area through work parties, fundraising, events, campaigning and responding to over 200 planning matters each year. We provide a forum for anyone with an interest in waterways to meet like-minded people. Join us on a guided walk, a work party or come along to one of our monthly talks.
