What's involved?

Join us on the second Tuesday of every month between 10.00 and 1.00 at various locations in the Dallow & Horninglow areas for an enjoyable day’s work on the Trent & Mersey Canal. Tasks will vary and could include lock maintenance, painting, vegetation management, planting, towpath repair, wildlife habitat improvements and much more. All tools and equipment will be provided, along with expert and friendly support. Leader Emma Franks will be delighted to see you there.

Towpath Taskforces are for individuals who want to volunteer with the Trust. If you are looking to join us with a team of colleagues from work or community group, please see our Volunteering in Partnership pages ( or contact the Trust on [email protected] so that we can discuss a partnership with your group or company.
