We are actively involved in a range of voluntary tasks, over weekends and in our free time, to maintain and restore the entire canal corridor. Whether your interested in learning or participating in hedge laying, operating a chain saw or merely performing vegetation removal we have a role for you. This is a wonderful way of working outdoors, restoring our green space and providing a recognised service for residents bordering the canal corridor.

In addition to canal husbandry we also undertake major asset restoration and maintenance contracts of bridges, locks and even ground maintenance. Currently we have a service contract with Sustrans to maintain 1.5 miles of cycle route verges and we have organised and participated in work camps to rebuild Ullicker’s bridge and Borrowash bottom lock.

Ullickers Bridge is free for adoption: Contact Chris Madge.

We are at present (March, 2015) completing the five year task of laying of over 1000 metres of hedge at Draycott and are clearing vegetation along the Borrowash stretch.

You can find further details of our current working parties, including diary dates, on our Working Party Diary Page and more photos of our achievements in our Working Party Gallery.
