This is a great opportunity to support the Trusts Asset Delivery Volunteering Team Improving The Canal bank on the Calder & Hebble at Brighouse. The work involves repairing a section of missing washwall resulting in a washout hole in the bank. The area of missing washwall is approximately 2 x 0.7 x 0.6 m and is on the towpath side. Also Length Inspectors have reported 5No. erosion pockets along this km length which have caused the canal bank to fail. The repairs will involve using concrete bags to rebuild the wall and then backfilled with clay and topsoil. All tools and equipment will be supplied along with support.
