How things have changed here. Since the Dudley Canal & Tunnel Trust received funding from the Heritage Lottery and others, they have built a remarkable structure which includes a cafe.
In the process they have built a new car park which is locked at night and a swing bridge which cannot be crossed after 5pm. The result is that boaters who moor on the side of the canal that we used are unable to get out of the area in the evening.
