The Wendover Canal Trust’s purpose is the restoration of the Wendover Canal to full navigation, which has already achieved a large Biodiversity Net Gain and will continue to do so. This restoration is undertaken by working parties of our volunteers under the watchful eye of Operations Director Tony Bardwell.
