Inside the November issue of Towpath Talk, Cotswold Canals Connected holds ground-breaking event; Jonathan Mosse continues his monthly look at freight developments on the inland waterways; and Alison Alderton delves into the history of a lock house which does not face the waterway.
Regularly topping 100 pages, Towpath Talk 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, members of about 25 canal societies and trusts converged on the Chesterfield Canal on Sunday, October 9 for the autumn meeting of the Northern Canals Association at the Hollingwood Hub; the Wey & Arun Canal Trust is looking to take on a second apprentice to join it in the restoration of the historic canal; and The Canal & River Trust, together with Marsh Charitable Trust, has announced the volunteers who have been recognised in its annual awards scheme.
