In the January issue of Towpath Talk, projects aimed at mitigating the effects of climate change on the waterways will receive £2 million in funding from the People’s Postcode Lottery and the first stage of the restoration of the ‘missing mile’ of the Stroudwater Navigation is now complete.
Regularly topping 100 pages, it features everything you need to know about boats, marinas, wildlife, conservation, heritage and superb days out.
Whether it’s news, reviews, reports or guides, we’ve got it covered right across the UK’s entire canal network, and there’s a substantial trader section for all your buying and selling needs. Towpath Talk is the best way to find out what’s going on in British waterways today.
This month in Towpath Talk, Grantham Canal Society volunteers have sited more than a dozen new benches along the towpath and the Canal & River Trust is offering nearly 70 six-month placements for young people to gain experience in waterway management, customer
service and heritage skills.
As usual, Towpath Talk is full of useful contacts, whether you are thinking of buying, hiring or selling a boat, or have one that needs upgrading or repairing. There are ideas for holidays, places to eat, a selection of book reviews, and what’s on!
