EVER wondered what’s lurking beneath the waters of the Birmingham Canal Navigations?
The Birmingham Canal Clean-up weekend on March 16-17, 2024, is a great opportunity to have fun and meet new people while clearing shopping trolleys, tyres, bicycles and even more exciting treasures from the canal!
It is hoped this annual effort on the BCN will help keep the less well-used parts of the BCN & Black Country Network from getting choked up with rubbish and becoming impassable for boats.
The work area this year is on the Wyrley & Essington Canal.
Volunteers will be based at Minerva Wharf, Wolverhampton, during the day. WRG volunteers are supported each year by volunteers from the Inland Waterways Association, Birmingham Canal Navigations Society, Canal & River Trust, Friends of Tipton Cut and local residents.
