Working Parties

The vast majority of our “on-the-ground” progress with our projects is through a small but ever growing group of volunteers – referred to affectionately as “Working Parties”.

We currently have have three different working parties set up: Working Wednesday, Working Fridays and Working Sundays.

Working Wednesdays have focused on progress at Borrowash, progressing the restoration at Borrowash Bottom Lock and maintaining the site.

Working Fridays are focused on progress at Draycott and the Canal Cottages, aiding with maintenance of the canal line and also restoration of the Canal Cottages.

Working Sundays are strategic deployments at not only Borrowash and Draycott, but other areas along the canal line, where activities are required less frequently.

However, we are always limited by our scope for further activities and more working parties by our number of volunteers.

If you are interested in getting involved – see our  Calendar for details for upcoming working party details, and other events.

Below is a small gallery of our activities across the various working parties:
