Meet The Canal and River Trust Volunteer Lock Keepers




We volunteer lock keepers play a crucial role during the busy summer boating season by:-

  • Helping to conserve water by ensuring the locks are used efficiently.
  • Assisting both first time boaters and old hands alike in operating the Gates & Paddles
  • Providing a friendly face and a helping hand along with local knowledge of the area, the canal and its history
  • Undertaking low level maintenance tasks such as painting, litter picking, and gardening 
To read about the day to day exploits and adventures of Maurice one of our volunteers  be sure to check out his Blog http://www.vollylockie.co.uk/
