Would you consider supporting the Trust in others ways?

We have an urgent requirement for more volunteers…

New teams of volunteers (or individuals) are needed to boost the existing capability, and address a variety of needs including Planning and Design, Programming, Management of health and safety, operation of mechanical plant and equipment, and the good old fashioned plain and simple grafting that is canal restoration.

Please read  Our pages on Volunteering if you can help at all, PLEASE GET IN TOUCH

We would very much value your support as a Member of the Herefordshire & Gloucester Canal Trust – you may be surprised at the number of ways in which you might be able to help us.

Armchair members are just as welcome as “muddy ones”.

Members of the Trust receive our quarterly magazine The Wharfinger, which contains news of restoration and the many other activities of the Trust.

You can meet new people at our regular Social Events, at the shows we attend, on-site at one of our restoration projects, or indeed take things a step further and join our large team of active volunteers.

Your membership will also help us demonstrate public support for the Canal Restoration to funding bodies.

Please help us restore the Hereford & Gloucester Canal by joining the Trust TODAY!

Current Projects that need funding:

Over Link Project
New for 2024, this projects aim is to re-create a link between Over Basin and the River Severn by reconstructing the original river lock.

Malswick Project
Following enabling works and payment made for the land we now need the money to actually re-excavate the canal channel and restore the towpath, work on which commenced during 2022.

Oxenhall No 2 Lock
Our next immediate project –  a modern day lock starts at £250,000 if all conditions are ideal. From there the canal channel needs to be reinstated across the previously restored aqueduct towards the  Newent station site.

Newent Station Site 
A major project recently redefined to include a boat lift which will convey narrowboats between the former platforms of Newent station and across the Dymock Road, and new visitor facilities.

Once all conditions are met for the new residential development north of the railway viaduct we will need funds for the land acquisition and building of four new locks and a new canal channel bypassing the town.
