Kent and East Sussex Canal Restoration Group
Lichfield and Hatherton Canal April 06
April 06 saw us back at the Tamworth Dig Deep site on the Lichfield and Hatherton Canal.
The works included brickwork and backfilling on Lock 26 and repairing the towpath between lock 24 and 25 where a culvert had collapsed.
Bricklaying on the forebay of lock 26
Backfilling the brickwork again on the forebay of lock 26
Just above lock 26 the towpath retaining wall had been damaged and required rebuilding. We were tasked with laying the concrete foundation in preparation for the brick layers.
I am really not at all sure why someone is wearing pink bunny ears on their hard hat!
I view of this we were to simply fill the culvert in from the back of the retaining wall.
