The Friends of the Leominster Canal (FoLC) is a Registered Charity: 1113746.
The largest structure on the canal was, and still is, the impressive aqueduct over the river Teme, near Little Hereford. The middle arch of the three span aqueduct was blown up in World War II, thus only two arches remain.
Paul Martin Hudson
It is true to say that the FoLC may not have been formed had it not been for the enthusiasm and dedication of Martin Hudson for this beloved Leominster Canal. Although it was clear that the canal could never be full restored, Martin believed that there was much that could be done in the areas of preservation, research and education. Under his capable leadership the FoLC went from strength to strength until he retired as chairman in 2011.

However, he remained an extremely active member leading walks and continuing his research until his very sad sudden and untimely death in Dec 2021. Martin is deeply missed by all who knew him, especial his friends from the FoLC.
