About the branch

We campaign to protect and restore the waterways around Milton Keynes. We now have the real prospect of a new cut through to Bedford, opening up the River Great Ouse as a regular cruising area and a major “ring” taking in the River Nene and the Middle Levels. We have regular social meetings from September to April and a number of water based events throughout the year.
