Will you help restore a matching pair of lock lobbies, providing a base for volunteers and the local community to protect the Calder & Hebble Navigation?
The Grade II listed Elland and Brookfoot lock lobbies were formerly toll houses dating back to the 1850s. Now, they are in a poor state of repair and the group’s volunteers urgently need to raise £30,000 to stop them falling down.
To make Elland and Brookfoot a hub for the local community, they need to be brought up to a safe standard to prevent further damage. If this doesn’t happen they are in danger of collapsing and will become completely unusable.
By donating today, you will become part of the history of the lobbies. They will be used to educate and train volunteers, members of the community and staff about our waterways and the essential role they play in today’s society.
Our waterways give people space to escape from the hustle and bustle of everyday life, connecting them to nature, history, and architecture. Unless we complete the Elland and Brookfoot restoration and keep educating people about our canals and rivers, they won’t be protected forever.
Restoring the lock lobbies will enable an entire community to build a relationship with the waterways and show them what could be lost if they do not remain protected.
