Shroppie Fly Paper Newsletter
Shroppie Fly Paper is the newsletter of IWA Shrewsbury & North Wales Branch.
You can also see a full report, with video, of the re-opening of the Montgomery Canal to Crickheath Basin on 3rd June 2023.
The image, left, shows Wappenshall Warehouse with water in the east basin once again after 70 years without. Bernie Jones sent us this lovely view and said restoration of the small warehouse is also coming on with new windows, underfloor heating and a toilets annexe currently in progress for the new café which opens later this year. Wappenshall is in east Shropshire on the line of the Shrewsbury and Newport Canals and from where a connection was made from the old Shrewsbury Canal to the national network at Norbury Junction in 1835.
