What's involved?

Towpath Rangers are the eyes and ears of the local waterway, a friendly face who is happy to chat to towpath users including boaters, walkers and cyclists when needed. On your regular (weekly or more often) walks along your towpath patch, you’ll get to spot anything you think we should be aware of too – for example a fence that needs repairing. You may also get the chance to lead guided walks, help with work parties and assist local residents in this varied role. There will be opportunities to take part in this role along the 11 miles of World heritage Site on the Llangollen Canal, North Wales.

This opportunity would suit someone with a few hours to spare each week, although you can dedicate more time if you choose to. You’ll be happy chatting to the general public and if you have a love of the local waterways, all the better. We would welcome interest from couples as well as individuals – this task is a great way to get fit and see some great wildlife at the same time!

Friendly and helpful. Health & safety training and an introduction to the Trust will be provided.

What will you get from us?

Health and Fitness, Meeting New People, Fresh Air, being part of a larger Team, being outdoors, Helping the environment.
