Salterhebble Working Party - 18th May 2013

Issue date: 4th June 2013

On Saturday 18th May, IWA West Riding Branch held a work party at Salterhebble locks on the Calder & Hebble Navigation, supported by Canal & River Trust.

The volunteers were split into groups to clean cobbles, remove debris from the cut, and clear the towpath. The Calder Navigation Society volunteers used nb Savile to remove debris from the cut up to the end of the canal towards Halifax. Unfortunately the weather was overcast and there were intermittent showers all day so the planned painting tasks couldn't take place.

CRT arranged the equipment and Shire Cruisers lent the branch a boat for tea and coffee making.

The branch has organised another work party on Saturday 27th July 10am-4pm to complete the work, do the painting and do some Himalayan Balsam bashing. If you would like to take part please email the branch westriding@waterways.org.uk
