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 Level Navigations. We have regular social meetings from September to April and several water based events throughout the year, including regular clean-ups through Milton Keynes – see this video report of the April 2023 clean-up.
