The banks of the canal hold the water in. Keeping them strong and solid also ensures that the towpath is a great place to be for anyone using it. They need caring for, especially when they're made from 90 year old concrete.

This is a great opportunity to support the Trust's Asset Delivery Volunteering team repairing 300m of concrete copers at Hatton Locks. We will be draining the canal down, then with the use of ladders we will access them. Whilst in the pounds, we will be wearing chest waders and rendering the copers with concrete.


- Opportunity to work directly with the Asset Delivery Volunteering team
- Working with a friendly team.
- Personal Protective Equipment provided.
- Shelter and refreshments provided (although you will have to provide your own lunch).
- You will be given a site induction and any relevant training required for the role.

Skills required

Sound Health & Safety knowledge/understanding (complete Trust health and safety videos - these can be sent to you if required).
- team work
- Good level of customer service/communication skills.
