Staffordshire online is keeping track of a canal restoration project in the south of the county, staffed entirely by dedicated volunteers...

If you think canal building is a thing of the past in Staffordshire, you'll be surprised to hear about the work of the Lichfield and Hatherton Canal Restoration Trust.
