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

You won’t need a head for heights to get involved and volunteer at the beautiful World Heritage Site of Pontcysyllte Aqueduct and Trevor Basin Visitor Centre in North Wales.

You will need to commit to:

  • a few hours a week
  • want to talk to the thousands of visitors we get from around the world each year
  • have a real passion for Ponty
  • plus, most importantly, a big smile!

In fact, we’re looking for people of all ages and skills who can help out right along the 11 mile World Heritage Site of the Llangollen Canal. You’re always welcome to come along to our Visitor Centre, chat to staff and existing volunteers about the work and discover more about the range of tasks available.
