Linking the Walsall Canal and the BCN New Main Line
A feasibility study to consider the restoration of the Bradley Canal was launched in 2015. This study was funded by IWA, Birmingham and Black Country Wildlife Trust, Birmingham Canal Navigation Society, Canal & River Trust.
The restored canal would recreate a 1.5 mile link on the BCN between the Walsall Canal and the New Main Line, by restoring sections of four lost canals, including the Wednesday Oak Loop beyond Bradley Workshops, and the nine Bradley Locks.
IWA is pleased to have been able to support the study to consider the restoration of the Bradley Canal, financially, with advice and through the commitment of local branch members over a long period. There is also support for the restoration from a local residents association.
Together we can protect and restore the waterways; Britain's 7,000 miles of canals and navigable rivers need your help.
