The disabled-friendly section is part of an ambitious programme to create a seven-mile Heritage Towpath Trail alongside the Lichfield Canal, which when restored will run from Huddlesford to Catshill Junction at Brownhills, where the Lichfield Canal links to the Wyrley and Essington Canal. At present, the Trail passes a section of narrows, a short length of single-vessel width canal, before rising on a gentle gradient up to the Tamworth Road.
The first 6km were launched by Help for Heroes champion Doug Hamilton Cox who was walking the canals of the UK collecting for the troops along the way, and also raising the profile of the work being done to restore our industrial heritage. The Trail was officially opened in April 2014 and in 2015 it was incorporated into the Heart of England Way.
Parts of the Heritage Towpath Trail are incorporated into the Heart of England Way and the Darwin Walk. The Darwin Walk is a 10 mile walk encircling the city of Lichfield and was created in 1985 to commemorate Erasmus Darwin (1731-1802). Erasmus lived in Lichfield from 1756 to 1781 .
