In 1963 a few enthusiasts, icnluding the author, set up the Caldon Canal Committee, now the Caldon Canal Society. In 1968 he started the agitation which led to Brindley Mill Preservation Trust, establish to restore the Leek Mill as a memorial to the great engineer. In 1972, bicentenary of James Brindley's death, harold Bode had the satisfaction of seeing the corn-mill taken over by the Trust and restoration started in earnest.
