Re-launch of a monthly work party on the Uttoxeter Canal working between Alton and Crumpwood.  This month we will be pulling up Himalayan Balsam, an invasive plant.

The meeting point is close to Alton Station on Farley Lane, close to Alton Towers. For those using satnav, use ST10 4BY. The work site is a short walk from this spot.  The What3Words location for the parking/meeting location is ///adapt.overdone.grow

There is a parking area down a track parallel to the railway, opposite the station. Please do not block the parking at the station, which is used by Landmark Trust guests.

All tools and equipment will be provided. Volunteers are advised to wear old clothes, stout shoes and to bring waterproofs in case of rain and a packed lunch if staying all day.  As we are pulling up Himalayan balsam, long trousers and long sleeves are also advisable to avoid nettle stings.

This work party is jointly led by IWA North Staffordshire & South Cheshire Branch and Caldon & Uttoxeter Canals Trust.
