The charity making life better by water

Stoke on Trent, open day

Open Days 2023/24

Each winter we invite you to watch our skilled teams at work in our series of open days.

Every year we replace lock gates, dredge to ensure the water is deep enough for boats, undertake maintenance on our mechanical structures, and carry out a host of other heritage repairs and tasks to keep the network open and help ensure its resilience to climate change.

In-person open days

Our face-to-face open days will start in early December and run through to March next year. Please keep checking this page for more information.

Virtual open days

Our programme of online 'behind the scenes' tours give those who aren't local, or prefer the virtual experience, the opportunity to see the breadth of works taking place. More details to follow soon.
