Burslem Port News - February 2021

Dear all,

It has been some time since we were last in touch! Despite the confusion of the last year, I am excited to be able to deliver some positive news and updates. Throughout lockdown, BPT have been working with Moss Naylor Young on practical steps towards restoring the Burslem Branch Canal. These steps include bids for funding to restore more of the canal and create community resources from the historic canal buildings, including the Wharf and Warehouse.

Volunteer work party cancelled

Dear all

Due to the extremely poor weather, today's planned work party is cancelled. There is thunder and lightning in the Stoke area at present and rain continuously forecast through the day, so it is not either safe or practical to go ahead.

If people are interested/available may try to reschedule for either this Friday or next Tuesday. Please let me know if either is possible for you.


Burslem Port update September 2019

Dear all

It feels like it has been some time since I was last in touch but I'm happy to say that after the usual summer break our work parties will get going again next Tuesday. We will have plenty of tidying up to do across the site, not least because on the following Saturday a number of visitors from the Inland Waterways Association, whose AGM is in Stoke over the weekend, will be on a tour around the site, which I will be leading. It is a good opportunity to tell people about our project and I'd like to get the site looking as good as we can for our visitors.

Burslem Port April update

Dear all

Optical level in use, March 2019

Firstly, thanks to those who came to our rearranged work party last month. I don't like to change things at short notice but we had so much to do it made sense on this occasion and we achieved what we wanted to.

Burslem Port March update

Dear all

Thanks to everyone who came to our work party last month. We had a number of new faces and made great progress with preparing parts of the site for the Footsteps project to begin later this year. In many ways this is the best time of year to be on site as the vegetation we have cleared over the winter has not yet regrown so it is easy to see what progress has been made.

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.
