On Saturday 6 April over 130 “time travellers”, fascinated by both waterways and railways, took a unique journey arranged by the Caldon & Uttoxeter Canals Trust on a rarely-open section of the Churnet Valley Railway along the route of the derelict Uttoxeter canal. They travelled to see the initial works undertaken by the Waterway Recovery Group to locate the remains of a 200 year old the canal lock and conserve the adjacent stone railway bridge, and view this beautiful section of remote Churnet Valley landscape in springtime.
Works to make a popular stretch of canal towpath more accessible and user-friendly for the local community have now started.
The works being carried out by the Canal & River Trust, the charity responsible for the nation’s waterways, will see the Caldon Canal towpath around Cheddleton resurfaced providing walkers, cyclists and disabled visitors with a clean, green traffic-free route.
