We love and care for your canals and rivers, because everyone deserves a place to escape.

Open Days

Each year we hold a number of free open days for the public. We're inviting you along to take a look behind the scenes and find out what it takes to keep our canals and rivers open to everyone.

Reflecting the breadth of the work we carry out, each open day offers a different experience and you could find yourself descending into drained locks, taking a boat trip or strolling along an empty aqueduct. 

Virtual Open Day 2017 - Monday 27 November

We're broadcasting a live VIRTUAL open day for you to view from the comfort of your own chair. The bottom gates of Lincomb Lock are nearing the end of their design life with rot and wear to some of the structure.

During the virtual open day, along with footage of these huge gates being craned out and the new ones being fitted, you will be able to see our team of divers as they go into the lock and position the new gates under water.

Once they have carried out this work, the team will drain down the last of the water to reveal an empty lock and what’s really lurking beneath the water line.

Take a look at what we've got coming up at our 2017/18 series of Winter Open Days.
