Oddfellows in the Boat

Walsall Road, WS14 OBU Lichfield


Join us for our second guided tour of the Summerhill section of the Lichfield Canal. See the huge progress we’ve made this year, with help from corporate volunteers from all over the country, as well as our own volunteers. Find out what’s next in store for this section.

Starting Oddfellows in the Boat, we’ll walk up to the aqueduct and then back to the pub where you’ll be able to buy a hot drink (or something stronger) to warm up.

There is no charge for this event, but a donation would be appreciated.

Please make sure you wear suitable footwear as it could be muddy.
