Wednesday 16th August 2017 – Summerhill Evening Walk.  A conducted tour of the Lichfield Canal restoration site at Summerhill using the reinstated towpath to see progress made since our last visit 2 years ago.  Lichfield & Hatherton Canals Restoration Trust engineer Peter Buck will show us what has been achieved and explain their plans for new locks and continuing the towpath over the M6 Toll Aqueduct.  Meet outside The Boat Inn on the A461 Walsall Road at Summerhill near Muckley Corner, Lichfield, WS14 0BU from 6pm for a prompt 6.15pm start.  Parking in the pub car park.  The walk is only just over 2 km (1.5 miles) and will be a gentle stroll with frequent stops for talks, taking about 1½ hours.  Those wanting a meal in The Boat after the walk should make their own bookings; see the website at https://www.theboatinnlichfield.com for a map, menus and reservations.  Further details from Phil Sharpe at phil.sharpe@waterways.org.uk or 01889 583330.
