The Uttoxeter Canal leaves the Caldon just before its terminus. It fully opened in 1811 and was closed in 1849. Restoration began with the reopening of the first lock and basin in Froghall in 2005.
Uttoxeter Canal Mileposts
The Trust has reinstated 11 missing mileposts along the line of the Uttoxeter Canal. You can now use these to guide you along the line of the canal between Oakamoor and Uttoxeter in our downloadable walking trail.
The Trust aims to have a stall at a number of events around the area each year including the popular Etruria Canal Festival. We also give talks and walks from time to time. See our calendar for more details.
We are always on the look out for people who can help us develop our projects and support the work we do. You don't even need to attend our meetings if you prefer not to. Volunteers who have the time to assist with a computer from their home are incredibly helpful to us.
