Dudley canal

This is operated by the Dudley Canal Trust and can also be accessed as part of the Black Country Museum (see in my 'Heritage' gallery). Boat trips through a selection of the mines tunnels take about 45 minutes and are great fun. A wide selection of older boats is on show in all sates of preservation and lack of it in the Museum area. Slight apologies for loss of quality in tunnel shots, but not too easy in very poor light and with a lot of water from above - send me a message when you have sussed out how to do it better
