WRG is supporting Canal & River Trust and Grantham Canal Society’s successful Heritage Lottery Fund bid to restore locks 14 and 15. Over the past two years WRG volunteers have spent 1100 volunteer days helping restore Lock 15 and with the restoration of the lock nearly complete volunteers will be turning their attentions to Lock 14.
Set in the beautiful Vale of Belvoir, volunteers will spend the summer helping establish the new site compound, dismantling the offside lock wall and clearing debris from the lock chamber. Once the chamber wall has been dismantled volunteers will start the rebuilding work – creating concrete foundations and constructing the new wall with bricks and blocks. With excellent local support and the opportunity to learn new skills, these will be popular camps.
