Free wood for boaters

Published: Wednesday, 13 December 2017

THERE is a pile of timber by the old coal chute on the BCN Old Mainline should nearby boaters be interested.

The BCN Society held a work party at the Sandwell Park Coal Chutes on the BCN Old Mainline on the 9th December, Tug Wilson writes.

We cleared a large amount of vegetation and felled a good number of trees. There is a fair bit of timber remaining on site if any of your readers wishes to 'collect' it!

There is a large sign advertising where the coal chutes were (and thus the location of the timber, which is to the right of the sign ) before Summit Tunnel heading towards Smethwick Locks.

Help yourselves!
