Coombswood Trust Open Weekend

The Coombeswood Canal Trust 

Is holding its Bi-annual Open Weekend during May and at the same time commemorating the 50th anniversary of Stewart and Lloyds closing down at Coombeswood in 1964.

The free event is open to the public between 10am and 4pm  each day over the weekend of 13th and 14th May, 2017 at Hawne Basin, Halesowen. Intended to enable visitors to see what the Trust has to offer and at the same time learn about its work and its historical links to the former Coombeswood Steel Works.


There will be trade and craft stalls together with trade boats selling their canal related items plus other items. There will be live music throughout the weekend as well as plenty to keep the kids occupied, as well as other attractions on site.

Canal boat trips will be taking visitors on a tour up to view what is left of the Tube Works Factory. Including the Gosty Hill Tunnel portal and back. Refreshments will be available in the club house with both hot and cold food and a real ale bar.
