Bugsworth Basin Heritage Trust


Reference: OPP0005587

Activities: Practical

Starts: 1st November 2017

Brookside, Buxworth

We are looking for volunteers to help us maintain the canal at Bugsworth Basin. This is a Scheduled Ancient Monument and was a busy canal/tramway interchange basin.
There are a variety of tasks to suit your inclinations and interests, including vegetation management, painting, repairs to the historic structures and leakage control, interpretation of the basin area, manning our visitor display and talking to visitors about the history of the basin and the Peak Forest Tramway.
We meet twice monthly on a Sunday between 9.30 and 4.00 but you don’t have to stay all day! Weekday work dates can also be organised.


An opportunity to work outside in the beautiful Peak District in a place of historical interest.

Skills required

If you have a skill we can probably put it to good use and will pass on the skills of other members of the group. A willingness to get your hands dirty or to talk to visitors about the history of the basin and surrounding area would be great.
