Dudley Canal and Tunnel Trust Archive Department

Through the hard work and dedication of our volunteers we have an amazing digitised collection charting the history of the Trust but also the history of the wider area.

Our collection is predominantly about the Canals in and around the West Midlands but many of our founders and early volunteers also wrote a vast range of articles about the early days of canal development and in particular about opening up the Dudley Tunnel and the abandoned limestone mines.                                                                       

Supported with a large photographic collection and copies of all the Trusts members magazine The Legger, this is a great resource for those researching early transport, industrial advances and local history.

The collection is available to view by appointment.
