Join us at Parbold dry dock for a series of work parties that aim to expose and restore the structure of this historic site. The works will include vegetation clearance, removal of Himalayan balsam, painting and general site maintenance.

Work parties will take place on alternate Thursday's 10am - 2pm. All tools and equipment are provided, together with expert and friendly support and refreshments


It's a great way to meet other local volunteers and the Trust's volunteer team, learn new practical skills, hear about other volunteer opportunities or just spend a few hours outdoors improving your local waterway environment.
