Reference: OPP0007510

Activities: Outdoors

Starts: Anytime

Montgomery Canal, SY10 8BT

On hold due to Covid-19.
The Trust is a key partner in the Montgomery Canal Partnership along with a number of organisations who are driving the restoration of the Montgomery Canal. The partnership are looking for volunteers to join their project team organising the reconstruction of Schoolhouse Bridge near Crickheath, Shropshire.

The part-time post is required for 9-12 months in 2021. The main site work is planned to commence Spring 2021. However, we are assembling the construction team now so some time will be spent beforehand liaising with the rest of the site team. We expect preliminary works, including moving a water main, to be undertaken in summer 2020.

The post would ideally suit someone wanting to be part of highly motivated teams striving to progress restoration of this beautiful canal which will bring significant benefits to local tourism and employment and improve the local heritage, both built and natural.
