‘Campaigning for better pedestrian access on

the towpaths of the country’s canals’

Thank you for your interest in the work of the Towpath Action Group. Our principal aim is to improve the lot of the thousands of people, up and down the country, who wish to walk the waterways that were at the heart of the Industrial Revolution over one hundred and fifty years ago.

Of the canals that pass through many parts of the country, a good deal are for at least part of their course, un-navigable and unwalkable. Notwithstanding this, the mills, wharves, tramroads and the navigations themselves, represent the strength of the country in the last century, and as such are a fundamental part of our heritage.

Besides putting continuing pressure on central and local government, private businesses and other bodies, we will mount campaigns to publicise our cause, and open up the canal system to the public. A quarterly newsletter updates subscribing members on new and existing issues as well as offering ideas for long and short walks and, often light-hearted views on developments around the waterway system.

If you would like to receive our newsletter (£4.00 for four issues - £3.00 if you are a student, pensioner or unemployed) please tear off the attached slip, and send with a cheque made payable to the TOWPATH ACTION GROUP to the address given below.

We need people from all corners of the country to keep us informed of problems that they might be encountering on their local canal - from the Bude Canal to the Driffield Navigation; the Dartford & Crayford to the Forth & Clyde. We aim to operate nationally and for that we need your eyes and ears. If you have any information that may be of use to us, or any ideas, then please get in touch.

Thank you for your support.
