07-10-2013 : LOTTERY BOOSTS MONTGOMERY CANAL RESTORATION

Plans to restore the 200 year old Montgomery Canal have received a boost with the announcement of a 160,000 pound development grant from the Heritage Lottery Fund.

Known for its outstanding natural beauty and heritage the Montgomery Canal runs for 33 miles between England and Wales.

The canal has the largest population of rare floating water plantain in Britain and is designated as a Site of Special Scientific Interest in England and a Special Area of Conservation in Wales for its abundance of aquatic plants.

Richard Parry, chief executive of the Canal and River Trust, said This is fantastic news.

 The Montgomery Canal is one of the most beautiful waterways in Britain.

We are delighted to be awarded this development funding.

 It is another big step towards the canal’s full restoration.

The Montgomery Canal Partnership aims to fully restore the canal as a haven for people and nature and bring Canal Boats back into the area for the first time in 80 years.

So thanks to the dedicated volunteers, the Canal and River Trust and the Heritage Lottery Fund Canal Boat Holiday guests may soon be able to explore more of the Montgomery Canal.
