Final Preview of Canal Prog

Richard Vobes is the Bald Explorer seeking out Britain’s fabulous heritage. In this episode for the Community Channel, to air hopefully in January, he is exploring a lost canal that the Shrewsbury and Newport Canal Trust are eager to see back in water.

Thomas Telford was involved towards the end of the construction and Richard is off to explore the area where the old tub boats used to run to provide coal for the iron furnaces at the beginning of the Industrial Revolution.

There is a stretch of the abandoned canal that is sill in water, although landlocked and so impossible at present to get a narrow boat on it, Richard has special permission to launch a coracle on it.
