Summary

CCT are looking for volunteers to join the Western Depot work party team to carry out restoration work from Stonehouse Ocean to Saul Junction.

Detailed description

We are looking for volunteers to join the Western Depot work party team to carry out restoration work from Stonehouse Ocean to Saul Junction.


CCT is evaluating the potential for more volunteer participation in excavating the proposed Missing Mile between the A38 roundabout and Westfield Bridge towards Eastington. If volunteers could create the new canal channel and mooring basin together with helping to build the required 2 new locks, it would save significant contractor costs.


This is a big challenge as it will not be possible without more volunteers, in particular to drive excavators and dumpers: there is a forecast total volume of 80,000 m3 of material to be dug out and redistributed on site!


Volunteers will also be needed to help construct the 2 new locks.


Training and certification could be provided for all these roles.

About The Cotswold Canal Trust

The Cotswold Canals Trust is a volunteer-led charity made up of hundreds of people working together, sharing expertise and energy to save our heritage and improve our local environment for the benefit of everyone.
Since the 1970s, volunteers have undertaken restoration and maintenance of the Cotswold Canals. With work now started on Phase 1B and exciting projects planned for Phase 2, we need more volunteers than ever to help achieve our goal of preserving, maintaining and improving the Stroudwater Navigation and the Thames & Severn Canal (i.e. the Cotswold Canals).
We have so many opportunities available from scrub bashing along the canal, dredging, operating a trip boat, sorting books at one of our bookshops to designing lock gates, the list is endless.
Cotswold Canals Trust Volunteers often speak of the new friendships, fun and sense of achievement they enjoy and we look forward to welcoming new volunteers to the team.
