Open Days

Each year we hold a number of free open days for the public. Come and take a look behind the scenes and discover something new.

You could find yourself descending into drained locks, taking a boat trip, strolling along an empty aqueduct, or enjoying the open air experience our waterways bring.

Poppies: Weeping Window

This summer, the infamous ceramic poppies, first displayed at the Tower of London are coming to Middleport Pottery.

Along the Trent & Mersey Canal, we're expecting thousands of visitors to admire and revere the beautiful red installation.

Don't miss out on a great viewpoint along our banks between 11-12 August, and 18-19 August.
