The Grand Union Canal is our local canal constructed in the late 1800’s to connect Birmingham with London, passing straight through the middle of the Colne Valley Regional Park. This water course plays an important role for the area providing a home, transportation route as well as a place for recreation however its uses have changed over the years shaping the Colne Valley and its people, join us today to learn how.

Rivers have shaped our communities, way of life and industries throughout history. However, humans have also impacted and altered river to fit our demands despite negative ecological effects. Today human actions continue to affect rivers and other watercourses in numerous ways, both seen and unseen but there is hope with simple to complex solutions to restore and enhance our rivers. Join us today for the final workshop of 2021 to summarise the river work this year and look to solutions for a positive future.
