"Making Ends Meet"


"Going Over The Top"

The Lapal Canal Project

Striving towards the incremental restoration of the decommissioned half of the Dudley No. 2 Canal, 
between Selly Oak in Birmingham 
and Halesowen in Dudley, eventually to full navigation via the Woodgate Valley.


... in brief ...


.... in detail ....


Click HERE for News and LCT comments about the Selly Oak / Battery Park start of the entire project.

The Lapal Canal Trust has accepted the recommendation from professional consultants  (Atkins, May 2007) that the former Lapal Tunnel should not be restored.
Instead, it should be substituted by a new, elevated alignment along the Woodgate Valley floor. 
By this means the resulting rural canal benefits ALL users, not just the boating fraternity. 

Please note that this web-site is due for a make-over soon to reflect the above.
