30th anniversary presentation of the story of Coombeswood Canal Trust
given by Dave Necklen after the 2007 AGM

(please adjust the quality of the video in settings to 1080p)

In 1981 Netherton Tunnel had been closed for some time and the Stourbridge Canal was very difficult which
discouraged all but the most adventurous boaters.

Before the slipway was built our boats were craned out onto the bank in batches for maintenance.
