Workparty

Scroll down for events and talks

Workparty volunteers work Monday to Friday on the restoration of Locks 14 & 15 (different team each day).


They also meet on Saturdays to undertake work, largely on the navigable section between Woolsthorpe and the A1.

Their work also includes a wide variety of jobs from grass cutting to painting and general repairs to engineering.  These are carried out as and when required.
