What's going on in 2013...
In 2012 volunteers started work rebuilding the Wendover Arm’s derelict Whitehouses Pumping Station by repairing the damaged wharf walls and culverts. This year volunteers will continue to work on the preservation and restoration of the Pumping Station using heritage construction skills to reinstate the weir crest. Volunteers may also spend some time helping to reline the canal by dry laying concrete blocks on bentonite lining.
