Advice and (Muddy) Support
IWA’s Waterway Recovery Group organises and runs around 25 week long residential canal camps as well as weekend digs via our regional groups. Every year our volunteers spend over 40,000 hours restoring the canals of England and Wales. You can invite WRG to become part of your restoration project to help a wide range of activities from vegetation clearance to a full lock chamber restoration.

Health & Safety law requires that sites are managed responsibly, and that those operating plant and vehicles have appropriate skills and training. WRG’s Driver Authorisation Scheme is the tool that is used to satisfy this requirement on all WRG sites.
WRG also has a specialist forestry team who can undertake a wide range of activities from cross-cutting and maintenance to aerial work and working from Mobile Elevated Work Platforms.
There are some useful WRG documents here.
