Somerset Coal Canal

The Somersetshire Coal Canal Society needs local volunteers to help restore the canal at Paulton during 2014. No previous experience needed, just enthusiasm and a few hours to spare. If you are interested just text “SCCS” to 077 1699 7284 or email and we will contact you to ask you what you want to do and when - chopping down the undergrowth (lots of that), digging out the Dry Dock (hard work), archeological investigation of what lies embedded in the puddling clay, rebuilding the stone bridges, restoring the wharves, providing tea and cakes, and plenty more besides
