Additional H&S Statement on Corona Virus (Covid-19)

Following the statement from the Prime Minster, Boris Johnson, on Monday 23rd March 2020, it is obvious that we cannot run the Working Parties as planned, during this pandemic.

Therefore, until it is safe to resume our Working Parties, they are all now cancelled, both at the Cottages and on the rest of the canal route. Our previous statement for our other activities can be found here.

If any problems occur on the canal route or at the cottages, a small dedicated teams will be sent to resolve the problem.

To keep in touch with the Trust and Society, visit our web site or contact us via

Again, thank you for your continued support and we all look forward to seeing you all safe on the other side of this problem.
