Trust Awarded SIB Community Grant

February 3rd 2015

The Trust has been awarded an SIB Community Group grant of £336,000.

A Social Investment Business Community Grant for work on the towpath trail which was thought to have been lost suddenly become active again last October and the same funding of £336,000 was made available. The focus of activity will be on the section of the Lichfield Canal between the Boat Inn and Barracks Lane just west of the aqueduct. Land will be purchased and a demolished culvert over Crane Brook will be reinstated. A contractor will be found to build the towpath trail along this section further extending the Heritage Towpath Trail and finally showing that the aqueduct does have relevance.
