Canal and River Trust Keeps Peak Forest Canal Flowing

A project to improve the water flow to the Peak Forest Canal is currently underway, the Canal and River Trust said in their latest announcement.

The Trust said that “£250,000 is being invested by us to keep the canal operational for the thousands of boaters and local community who use the canal for boating and leisure purposes.”

The work is expected to last 12 weeks and will involve installing new pipes from Black Brook river which will increase the water flow to the canal. Other works will include re-building the 200-year-old canal wall in the middle arm of Bugsworth Basin.

The new feeder pipes will provide up to 3.5 million liters of water to the Peak Forest Canal each day.

Sarah Bowes, the Trust project manager, said: “It’s important that the Canal and River Trust makes this investment to improve water flow to help ensure Bugsworth Basin and the Canal continue to provide a wonderful amenity for all to enjoy.

Once the works are completed, the Trust, together with Bugsworth Basin Heritage Trust volunteers, will start work on replanting trees and shrubs around the site.
