Trust Shop

If you would like to find out more about the Trust or chat to somebody face to face, there is no better place than the Trust shop in Swindon. They are open on Fridays and Saturdays, full details can be found from the link on the left.

We are also always on the look out for people to help out in the shop. You don't need to know loads about the canal as training will be provided and you will never be left alone.


Last year we tackled some ambitious projects and made great progress thanks to the skills and efforts of WBCT members combined with skills and effort from WRG on some of the projects. Through 2009 there will be plenty of opportunities for interesting and challenging work. We are looking for bricklayers as well as drivers for dumpers and excavators, and people to do general outdoor work like path clearance. If you'd like to join our working parties and share in our achievements, please get in touch..

Our volunteers enjoy working on a wide range of projects. Let us know about your skills and interests and we're confident there will be a project to suit you and that you'll enjoy. Training for some tasks is available through WBCT and WRG. If you are interested in working with us or would like to get involved in any of these projects please give us a call at the office on 0845 226 8567 or email: This e-mail address is being protected from spambots.

Leave a Legacy

The restoration of the Wilts & Berks Canal is one of the most difficult and exciting canal restoration projects ever. The sections of the canal that we have worked on so far have already shown the enormous benefits to the community and to the environment of the restored canal. With over 60 miles of canal to bring back to life as a resource for generations to come we will need funding and support for many years. As a registered charity what we can achieve depends largely on voluntary gifts and legacies from our supporters.
