Welcome

Historic view towards Burslem

The Trust seeks to reopen the Burslem Branch Canal, creating new waterside facilities to deliver sustainable leisure, tourism and thus employment.

We aim to make a major difference to the quality of life in Burslem and Middleport through a major regeneration project which will extend from Rogerson’s Meadows and the Trent and Mersey Canal to Furlong Mills in lower Burslem.

The completed project will deliver the re-opened Canal Branch, a mooring basin in a newly constructed pool at Furlong Mills, recreational facilities in the heritage buildings on the historic wharf, and outdoor/sporting activities along the canal side.

It will provide a high-quality canalside setting for the residential redevelopment sites.

You can find out more about our project here.

Work party 22nd May CANCELLED

Dear all

Apologies for the very late notice but I'm afraid that tomorrow's work party has had to be cancelled. Unfortunately I am now unable to attend due to a work-related issue and it is too late to find anyone else to lead the day. The next work party will be on 26th June, as previously notified.

Please also don't forget that we will be at Etruria Canals Festival the weekend after next, 3rd and 4th June. Do come along and find out more about recent developments on the Inland Waterways Association stand.
