Trust exhibit at Churnet Valley Railway gala

The Trust has an exhibition at Froghall & Kingsley Station on the Churnet Valley railway as part of the gala event to celebrate the re-opening of the line from Leekbrook junction to Cauldon Lowe. We have displays about the Uttoxeter Canal restoration, Leek Branch extension and Churnet Valley Living Landscape Partnership, and will be on site to talk to you about these exciting projects on selected days.

Trust exhibit in Stone and Alton

Visit Canal Cruising Co on Saturday 2 October - the boatyard at the heart of canal town Stone – and explore taking a holiday afloat, life on board a working narrow boat and restoring the lost canals of Staffordshire with volunteers from The Inland Waterways Association (IWA) Stoke-on-Trent branch and Caldon & Uttoxeter Canals Trust.

Leek Branch re-opened

After £500,000 of investment and almost eight months of investigations, plans and repairs, British Waterways has announced that the Caldon Canal is now open following a breach in November.

Loving our Landscape!

Heritage Lottery Fund has earmarked £17m to help communities look after their landscapes - including the Staffordshire Moorlands landscape embracing the Caldon and Uttoxeter Canals.

Trust report restoration of the Churnet Valley waterway is feasible

The Caldon & Uttoxeter Canals Trust (CUCT) has taken delivery of the “Uttoxeter Canal Restoration Outline Feasibility Study.” The study was commissioned by Staffordshire County Council and the Trust to: “determine whether the restoration of the Uttoxeter Canal between the Caldon Canal at Froghall to the north and Uttoxeter Gravel Pits to the south is a feasible project.”
