Primary school students learn about work to restore canal in Lichfield

Lichfield primary school children were given an insight into the importance of waterways in the Victorian period when they visited the city’s canal restoration project.

Pupils from St Michael’s Primary School took part in a quiz organised by the Lichfield and Hatherton Canals Restoration Trust’s engineering director Peter Buck and the head of Year 6, Rosemary Moseley, on a visit to the Tamworth Road site.

The visit was part of a projet the students are working on about canals and the work being carried out to restore the route through Lichfield.

Trust representative Hilary Smith said: “It would be nice to think that the visit might have ignited a spark of interest in a few of the children and that they may think of the canal in Lichfield as their canal.”
