Workparty ~ Talks ~ Events


(Scroll down for talks and events)

Workparty volunteers meet on Monday, Friday & Saturday, plus other weekdays as required to undertake work.  This is largely on the navigable section between Woolsthorpe to the A1 and increasingly at other sites along the canal.

Or join one of our construction teams working on various projects from slipway & lock building to bridge raising & culvert repairs.
