Join us for our regular work parties across the beautiful Grantham Canal, which meanders over 30 miles through the countryside and rural villages between Nottingham and Grantham. Tasks will vary throughout the year and will change with the seasons - tasks could include vegetation management, planting, towpath repair, painting gates and barriers, fence repair and painting lock gates. All tools and equipment will be provided, together with expert and friendly support and refreshments.

To start things off we will look to run the taskforces on the 1st Thursday of the month but this is open to change as the works progress.


The Towpath Taskforce offers a great way to meet other local Trust volunteers and staff, learn new practical skills or just spend a few hours outdoors improving your local waterway environment.
