Trent and Mersey Canal Society

The Trent and Mersey Canal Society was founded in 1974 to promote the future well-being of the waterway and provide a focus for all who are interested in this time honoured old canal – boaters, walkers, naturalists, businesses, farmers, residents and visitors alike. Our magazine, Grand Trunk is published six times a year. It keeps members up-to-date with changes and developments and contains illustrated articles about how the canal was used in the past, other canals and boating activities as well as topical information about our activities, including forthcoming social events.
