CONTACTS WITH OUR STAKEHOLDERS ABOUT RESTORATION
A start has been made on this and it's hoped that they will start to be productive later this year.
FUN DAYS AND OUR EXHIBITION STAND
We hope to post the dates for events in Manchester and Reddish shortly.
Manchester University students are about to complete a report on the reconstruction of the canal aqueduct over the railway 400 metres north west of North Reddish station.
Last year the students completed a report that introduced the idea of locking down into Lower Gorton reservoir and up again to continue to Stockport together with thoughts on obtaining a water supply from the Upper reservoir. This report has been forwarded to our stakeholders for appraisal.
