Join us on the Leeds and Liverpool Enfield Changeline Bridge No 114A, Enfield Wharf, Blackburn Road Bridge, Clayton-le-Moors off the A678.  Grid Reference SD747304.  Weeding and pruning shrubs at the entrance slope from Blackburn Road.   We may be able to remove items from the canal – size and weight will determine this. There is a lot to do at Bridge 114A so there will be litter-picking at Enfield Wharf changeline Bridge #114A only and not along the canal towpath to Rileys Swing Bridge No 114 and Whalley Road Bridge No 114B.  This session is in response to a site visit and information supplied from the general public about magnet fishing and general litter and waste and future landscaping of the two shrub beds.

Tea, coffee and biscuit refreshments are supplied. All tools and gloves are provided but you can bring your own gloves. Safety equipment provided.  Please wear suitable outdoor clothing, strong shoes or boots and bring your lunch.  You may need to park in the Oak Street/Maple Street area – BB5 5JJ

Volunteer for as long as you can and do as much as you can or pop along to find out more about volunteering on the Leeds-Liverpool Canal.  This volunteering opportunity is provided through a partnership between the Canal & River Trust and The PROSPECTS Foundation.
