THE MISSING LINKS: - updated February 2008
Sponsored by Birmingham International Airport - Supporting Sustainable Initiatives
Lichfield and Hatherton canals - the key to regeneration of the underused waterways of the Midlands.
Presented and narrated by David Suchet OBE, Vice-President of the Lichfield & Hatherton Canals Restoration Trust, The Missing Links describes the history, background and ongoing restoration of the Lichfield Canal and the Hatherton Canal.
Once important arteries feeding in and out of the Birmingham Canal Navigations, their use fell away and it was not long before closure and dereliction claimed them, making restoration seemingly impossible. The Lichfield and Hatherton Canals Restoration Trust was formed to reverse this decline and once again bring these waterways back to life.
Michael Fabricant, MP for Lichfield and Trust Patron, speaks about his support for this important restoration which will revitalise the underused parts of the northern BCN, and his dream of seeing the boats return to Lichfield. The physical restoration work being carried out by volunteers is brought fully up to date to February 2008. As a bonus, a further short film after the main production tells the story behind some of the promotional aspects used to achieve the Canal Trustís aims.
Includes archive images of Hednesford Basin, now lost and impossible to recover.
