Everyone deserves to experience Dudley Tunnel and all its stories

Donate today to Keep us Afloat

Dudley Canal & Tunnel Trust have been looking after the Dudley Tunnel and its network of underground waterways since they were first threatened in the 1950s. And yet, through all those years no situation we've faced has been more challenging than right now, as the current Covid-19 coronavirus situation forces us to close our doors to the public.
