Dr. Alex Mitchell, archivist of the Bridgewater Canal, will give a talk on "Unlocking the Bridgewater: Artefacts from the Bridgewater Archive."

Dr Alex Mitchell will introduce the Bridgewater Archives and outline the records held relating to the Bridgewater Canal. The Archive was set up in August 2013 with the aim of capturing and preserving the history of the Bridgewater Canal and its assets.

Free and all welcome...



Refurbishing Flower Beds

A team of the Friends, led by Jim Smart and Ian Stuart, have been refurbishing two derelict flower beds. One is by White's Bridge (opposite the Bridge Inn) and the second is a raised flower bed a little way along the path that leads to Britannia Road.




In addition to these two beds, on 12 April 2014 Jim and Ian re-planted a small triangular bed which is near the raised flower bed.
