Heritage Trail Board 3a – the Sluice Gates

This board was erected in 2009 following the completion of a restoration project centred on the canal sluice gates. The project was funded with the aid of grants from The Heritage Lottery Fund, Robbie Williams’ Give it Sum and the Staffordshire Moorlands Partnership.

The board focuses on the power of water and was designed by a group of children from the Valley Primary School. Three of the children’s poems are printed on the board.
