Uttoxeter Canal work party - January 2020
Our next volunteer work party on the Uttoxeter Canal will be at Crumpwood on Thursday of this week, 10th January. We plan to build a bonfire near to Carrington's Lock where we can dispose of vegetation cut back during a previous work party, as well as whatever else we get to on the day. This shouldn't be too strenuous a task, so is a good way to get going again after our Christmas break. For those who have not been there yet, it will be a first chance to see the completed fish pass at nearby Crumpwood Weir.
The work party is jointly led by the Inland Waterways Association North Staffordshire & South Cheshire Branch and Caldon & Uttoxeter Canals Trust. No parking is available at site so please meet at 9.30am at Denstone Village Hall, College Rd, Denstone, Uttoxeter, Staffordshire ST14 5HR for a lift, or meet on site at Bridge 70 at 10am having made your own way on foot. The site is a little over a mile down the old railway track from either Denstone or Alton. When you see the newly laid section of towpath, walk down this to the bridge and on from there a short distance to the weir.
