Restoration Working Parties

The Wendover Canal Trust’s purpose is the restoration of the Wendover Canal to full navigation. Our restoration has achieved considerable Biodiversity Net Gain and will continue to do so. Our work also opens access to the canal for people to improve their well-being and enjoy the heritage features. To do all this, we organise working parties of our volunteers under the watchful eye of our Operations Director.
