IWA-WRG Birmingham Canals Clean Up 2024

Ever wondered what’s lurking beneath the waters of the Birmingham Canal Navigations?

The Birmingham Canals Clean-up weekend is a great opportunity to have fun and meet new people while clearing shopping trolleys, tyres, bicycles and even more exciting treasures from the canal! It is hoped this annual effort on the BCN will help keep the less well used parts of the BCN & Black Country Network from getting choked up with rubbish and becoming impassable for boats!

WRG volunteers are supported each year by volunteers from the Inland Waterways AssociationBirmingham Canal Navigations SocietyCanal & River Trust, Friends of Tipton Cut and local residents.

Basic accommodation is provided from Friday night at the Malthouse Stables Activity Centre in Tipton

Day Visitors should gather at the signing-in point at Minerva Wharf, Wolverhampton – the work will focus on the Main line canal and the W & E Canal in the Horseley Fields area.
