Upcoming events

Following recent progress with the Cheshire Locks Project, we are now undertaking a regular monthly work party on the flight.

These work parties currently take place on the third Thursday of each month except December. Each session starts at 10 am and finishes by 3pm (usually 2:30pm in winter.) You can turn up just for the morning or the afternoon, or come for the whole day and bring a packed lunch. All tools will be provided – you just need to wear stout shoes and bring waterproofs in case of rain.

Tasks will include vegetation clearance from walls and bridges, removing weeds and grass from cobble setts and painting handrails, balance beams and bollards. Reports from recent work parties and and information about upcoming dates can be found on the Trent & Mersey Canal Society website.
