I think if CRT put as much effort into the canals as they do with some of their rinki-dink projects then maybe the canals will become what they should be rather than what they are.
Plant an orchard on land at Caen Hillside on the Kennet & Avon Canal
Give a vole a home along the Grand Union Canal
Give a vole a home along the Grand Union Canal's Leicester Line
Create a butterfly highway at Fenny Compton
Give a newt a home on the Grand Union Canal
Create a wildlife habitat in Coney Meadow on the Droitwich Canals
Give a vole a home along the Kennet & Avon Canal
Create a community art project in Birmingham's Heartlands Linear Park
Create a wildlife haven on the River Severn
Create an accessible viewing platform for the spectacular Iron Trunk Aqueduct
I get the impression that our native voles are too stupid to find their own homes.
