CUCT have an exhibition at Cheadle Discovery Centre from today until 28th March 2015. As well as an extensive display about the Uttoxeter Canal, there are a range of other displays on canal-related themes. Two films about the Caldon Canal in the 1970s can be viewed. Leaflets about various activities are available to take away along with a guide book about the Caldon Canal, which is available to purchase.
Our monthly work party will carry out vegetation management and other tasks around Bridge 70 on the Uttoxeter Canal. This month we expect to be improving sections of the towpath, among other tasks, but this may change depending on the weather and other factors.
All tools and equipment are provided. Volunteers are advised to wear old clothes, stout shoes and to bring waterproofs and a packed lunch.
Volunteers from the Waterway Recovery Group have spent a week working with the Trust to reinstate the towpath of the Uttoxeter Canal near to Bridge 70 at Crumpwood. They also repointed the bridge sides and cleared some fallen stones from the canal bed, as well as clearing a large area of Himalayan Balsam from the area.
Meet outside Denstone Village Hall at 6.30pm to walk along the former railway line to Bridge 70, or join us there from 7pm (note: no vehicular access)
7:00pm - 9:00pm
Why not come along for this evening work party session to discover what there is to be done around Bridge 70 on the Uttoxeter Canal? Work will include vegetation management and Himalayan Balsam clearance.
