Manchester Bolton & Bury Canal

Manchester Bolton & Bury Canal

The Manchester Bolton & Bury Canal Society aims to help to restore the canal to navigation; the first length in Salford was reopened in 2008. It also maintains the rest of the canal and its towpath.

The society continues to liaise with CRT and the three local authorities, and has monthly weekend working parties. Substantial lengths of canal and towpath have been cleared and improved.

Working closely with CRT, the society continues to enhance the canal at Nob End, including the Prestolee lock flight and the start of the Bolton Arm.
