Berkshire Canal Crew

You are here

The Canal Crew runs projects every Tuesday.

Since May 2015, this group has been supporting the Canal & River Trust to manage the Kennet & Avon Canal throughout Berkshire. Managing the hedgerows, maintaining the tow-path, looking after the locks, planting trees and protecting the canal's banks are all part of the interesting and unique mix of activities this group's members undertakes.

A lift is normally available to and from the work site and Reading in our red minibus.

We frequently add new projects to this programme as and when they're arranged; this is often done at short notice, so do check back frequently.



We also run the Berkshire Biodiversity Action Team every Thursday and the Reading Green Gym on every 4th Saturday of the month (from 22-10-16), too.
