Adopt your local canal

Post by Stathamender » Wed May 03, 2017 10:06 am

The CRT has put out a call for people to 'adopt' their local canal, by which they mean form a group or get an existing group to look after it, details here: https://canalrivertrust.org.uk/voluntee ... nformation. There's an 'interactive map' here to check for possibilities near you: https://canalrivertrust.org.uk/volunteer/adopt-a-canal. The page and, especially the map, run rather slowly.

My nearest ones, Basingstoke & Wey, do not fall under the CRT.

Two Societies I am in have sections of the Kennet & Avon which are managed by the CRT who do an excellent job of the towpath. A shame that the revival of the K & A finalised in the 1990s has degraded the river Kennet's water quality. The river feeds and runs with the canal from Kintbury until it joins the Thames at Reading.

Very expensive proposals to separate the canal from the river system have been drawn up - possibly never to come to fruition due to money!
