Last summer WRG volunteers started work to repair the towpath wall at Harborne Wharf. Over the years the wall has deteriorated significantly with brickwork missing and several sections being undermined.
In 2017 we will continue repair work, strengthen existing foundations and repair damaged brickwork. Volunteers will also clear vegetation around the Selly Oak Park Bridge, one of the oldest surviving original canal bridges in Birmingham, in preparation for archaeological investigations.
