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

Get involved at the Canal Museum

Meet our fantastic team of dedicated volunteers who help us look after our heritage here at the Canal Museum, and along the towpath in Stoke Bruerne.

Our volunteers also act as visitor guides and gift shop helpers. While more of our team work as lock keepers, or cut the grass, clear the woods, grease the lock mechanisms, paint the gates and benches and many more important jobs that make sure our museum remains one of our featured places to visit. We couldn’t continue to care for our wonderful waterways without them.
