Uttoxeter Canal

Uttoxeter Canal

The Caldon & Uttoxeter Canals Trust, supported by WRG, has concentrated recent efforts on reopening the stretch of towpath between Alton and Crumpwood.

Volunteers have cleared trees and other vegetation from almost a mile of towpath and are now planning repairs in the two sections where the towpath has been completely lost.

Discussions about rewatering half of this section between Alton and Charlesworth Lock are also underway.

The trust has completed the installation of missing mileposts all the way into Uttoxeter and is now promoting a walking route from the town along, or close to, the original line as far as Oakamoor, covering 10 of the 13 miles of the canal.
