Join us for an online talk on “Canals and their Historic Conservation in the West Midlands” by Kate Langley of the Canal & River Trust. 

Kate explains that: Our historic waterways feature a unique collection of structures including lock-keepers’ cottages, aqueducts, bridges, sluices, culverts and reservoirs (to name a few).

Many of these structures and bridges are statutorily protected through listing and scheduling and require precious conservation management. A heritage adviser from the Canal & River Trust will speak about their work at the Trust and how they use historic maps, plans and images to help guide the conservation work at the Trust. Focusing on Birmingham and the Black Country area, a selection of historic deed plans will feature in the presentation along with many examples of recent conservation work undertaken by the Trust, including the restoration of the Roundhouse in Birmingham.

Members can join in using a desktop computer, tablet or smart phone, and will be informed by email of the joining link in advance. Please ensure that IWA has your current email address.
