 Lichfield Canal Pound 27 by Tamworth Road is ready for progressive watering right back to Lock 26, with puddled clay lining preferred where there will be much boat activity in a confined area.  See the Feet of Clay Appeal

Eventually, pound 27 will extend through the A51 tunnel and up to Lock 27 on the other side of the road in Darnford Park.
