Restoration Working Parties

The Wendover Canal Trust volunteers attend regular restoration working parties managed by our Site Manager Mikk Bradley. We are restoring the Wendover Canal to full navigation, which in turn achieves so much more. Our restoration has achieved considerable Biodiversity Net Gain and continues to do so. Our work also opens access to the canal for people to improve their well-being and enjoy the heritage features.

Next Restoration Working Parties

Restoration working parties are held throughout the year, usually starting on the first Friday of the month, listed below.
