Triangular Crane, Bumble Hole Boat Yard, Dudley - Dudley

C19 triangular boat crane in very poor condition. Historic England funded a report on the condition and repair of the monument in 1997. An application for Historic England funding was made but later withdrawn as no match funding was available for the repairs. The crane collapsed in 2002 and sections of structure remained stored in the yard. A joint initiative between Historic England, the Canal and River Trust and the Black Country Museum is currently investigating repair/reinstatement of the structure.
