The Friends of the Galton Valley Canal Museum is a volunteer group that assists Sandwell Museum Service in the running of the Galton Valley Canal Museum in Smethwick.  The Friends Group has been a welcome addition to the MADE team in terms of supporting us during our ‘Jayne’s Walks’ and Chance Glassworks factory tours. Their expertise and knowledge of the local canal network and welcoming cups of tea made visits to Smethwick both warm and informative.

The Canal Museum can be found in the New Smethwick Pumping Station near Brasshouse Lane Bridge, between the Old and New Main Line Canals in Smethwick.
