RED WHEEL FOR TARDEBIGGE

Canal Boat - - News -

Tardebigge Lock Flight on the Worces­ter & Birm­ing­ham Canal, the coun­try’s longest with 30 nar­row locks, has been awarded one of the Trans­port Trust’s Red Wheel plaques mark­ing sig­nif­i­cant sites in trans­port his­tory. Tardebigge was where wa­ter­way re­vival cham­pi­ons Tom Rolt and Robert Aick­man met in 1945. David Viner, her­itage ad­vi­sor at the Canal & River Trust, said: “Tardebigge was where it all turned around for the canals, so it’s fan­tas­tic to see its im­por­tant his­tory marked.”
