Club Profile

The Coombeswood Canal Trust is based at Hawne Basin in Halesowen, the current terminus of the Dudley No 2 Canal, two and three quarter miles from Windmill End Junction.
Established in 1978 the Trust was formed by a group of enthusiasts from Wolverhampton Boat Club who by leasing Hawne Basin from Dudley MBC sought to revive what was then a derelict Railway Interchange Basin, and by so doing helping to secure the future of the Dudley No2 Canal. Largely thanks to volunteer effort the Basin was restored and facilities increased over the years with the Trust purchasing the freehold in 2007.
Providing moorings for over ninety boats and offering short term moorings, a warm welcome awaits visitors who venture down the Dudley No2 Canal. Offering all the usual facilities boaters and other visitors can expect, including a Clubhouse with a Bar, new members are always welcome. You donïÿýt have to be a boat owner to join and with an active Social Club Calendar over the autumn and winter months and plenty of volunteer opportunities for those who feel able to become more involved the Trust has much to offer its members.
The Trust website provides comprehensive information about the Trust and its facilities and can be found at www.hawnebasin.org.uk
We look forward to welcoming you!
