See the network of underground canal routes that helped form the industrial Black Country and marvel at the fantastic Limestone Caverns. Enjoy a canalside walk or relaxing boat trip, and admire the local history. See if you can spot any of the limestone fossils remaining from when the area was below sea, and explore the Dudley Tunnel - don't be startled by the bats!

Recently visited with family, one of whom is from up North. Fantastic little journey learning the history of the Black Country and the importance of the canals in our history. Highly recommended!
