There are also childrens activities taking place between 11am and 2pm just outside the British Waterways Office.

This family event is running alongside the fantastic work of the Friends of the Fradley volunteers to maintain and preserve Fradley Nature Reserve.

Moor up at the Fradley Junction on your Canal Boat Holiday in Staffordshire and visit one of the most picturesque waterside scenes in the Midlands, Fradley Junction near Lichfield in Staffordshire is where the Coventry Canal meets the Trent And Mersey Canal.

Not only can you see boats passing through this busy canal junction, but you can take the scenic route around the nature reserve to find a hidden bird hide.

Fradley Junction has supported a hive of activity on the canal over the past two centuries and today the junction is surrounded by listed buildings, cottages and warehouses.

Call into The Swan Inn Public House and enjoy a meal and a pint.

Fradley Junction is a great place to visit with your family on your Canal Boat Holiday as it is one of the busiest boating junctions, so there is always lots of action through the locks.

Take a walk around the nature path to discover a number of woodland sculptures, willow tunnel and a beautifully hand built bird hide.
