IWA Manchester Branch Work Party

Issue date: 15th March 2013

IWA Manchester Branch held a work party on the Ashton Canal in February with CRT’s Towpath Taskforce. Work included emptying Ironsides, a century old horse drawn working boat.  Volunteers that weren't involved in shovelling or barrowing steadily filled two CRT lorries with collected rubbish and dredged metalwork.  

Another work party is planned for 23rd March. For more information or to get involved please contact Ian Price, branch chairman (ian.price@waterways.org.uk)
