Lichfield Lines

Lichfield Lines is the newsletter of IWA Lichfield Branch.

It is produced 4 times a year to keep members informed about our forthcoming public meetings, walks, work parties and other activities, to provide reports on recent meetings and events, and to include articles of general interest to our members.

The editor, Peter Gurney, welcomes articles, letters or photographs of waterway activities in our Branch area which can be emailed to (Please note there is a 10MB limit for emails with photos as attachments sent via this adddress).

Copy Date
The next copy date for contributions will be 15th April 2020, for publication by May.

Email Copies
If you currently receive Lichfield Lines by post but would be happy to have future copies sent instead by email link, please inform the Membership Dept at

This saves IWA printing and postage costs and enables the Branch to do more to support local waterways.
