How we spend the money

The funds that the above activities generate is spent in several ways, however all of it is invested back into maintaining and improving the canal as well as specific projects. The projects that we are currently fundraising for include;

  • Replacing our passenger boat “Kitty” which will cost in the region of £200,000.
  • A museum website to include access to our extensive archives.
  • Information signs along the canal tow path.
