From the Archives Using materials from our own archives this presentation will take you on a fascinating journey of the history of the Trust and its early days. The evening will introduce you to some of the materials we have in the collection as well as focusing on the legacy of the British transport Commission's original proposal to close the tunnels in 1959. An act that unleashed a mighty battle. We will also explore the anniversary of "The Dudley Dig" an amazing time when people turned out in droves to help support the work of the Trust in restoring the abandoned and decaying canals.
