Britain's network of canals and inland waterways are a huge linear national park - a leisure park, a vital wildlife sanctuary, an important industrial heritage site and an environment-friendly transport system all rolled into one.
Despite this there are still over 2500 miles of derelict waterways and that's where we need your help!
WRG attracts a wide range of people, from young volunteers taking part in the Duke of Edinburgh's Award Scheme; to waterway enthusiasts who wish to make a contribution to restoring and preserving the system; to people who just want to get outdoors and dirty, have fun and learn new skills.
WRG offers people a unique volunteering experience with the chance to learn traditional skills such as bricklaying and stonework, through to more modern techniques such as piling, concreting, or even how to operate machinery such as excavator or dumpers. Volunteers attending our activities must be aged over 18, but apart from that age doesn't matter, nor does previous experience.
