In the September issue of Towpath Talk, The Canal & River Trust has been using their abseiling skills to repair a decades old timber pier and the Environment Agency is investing £5.2 million to maintain key navigation structures.
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 Towpath Talk editor Janet Richardson had a virtual meeting with Canal & River Trust programme manager Paul Wroe and co-ordinator Julia Moore to discuss their Winter programme and the Lapal Canal Trust has welcomed a £40,000 grant from the Garfield Weston Foundation towards restoration of the Dudley No 2 Canal.
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!
