Volunteer work party
Our regular work parties carry out vegetation management and other tasks on the Uttoxeter Canal.
In a change to the information that was given out previously, we will be working in the Crumpwood area rather than at Alton. The task will be to tidy and cut back vegetation along the line of the canal from Crumpwood Weir in the direction of Carrington's Lock and Bridge 70. We have not worked in this area for a few months so it is a good opportunity to get our most important site looking good again.
No parking is available at site so please meet at 9.30am at Denstone Village Hall, College Rd, Denstone, Uttoxeter, Staffordshire ST14 5HR for a lift, or meet on site at Bridge 70 at 10am having made your own way on foot. The site is a little over a mile walk down the old railway track from either Denstone or Alton. When you see the laid section of towpath, walk down this past the bridge towards Crumpwood Weir
All tools and equipment will be provided. Volunteers are advised to wear old clothes, stout shoes and to bring waterproofs in case of rain and a packed lunch if staying all day.
This work party is jointly led by the Inland Waterways Association North Staffordshire & South Cheshire Branch and Caldon & Uttoxeter Canals Trust.
