Join the Trust

Anyone can join the Trust.

Armchair members are just as welcome as “muddy ones”. You will be surprised at the number of ways in which you might be able to help us.

Your Membership will demonstrate public support for the Canal Restoration to funding bodies.

You can meet new people at our range of regular social events – from open days at one of our restoration sites to monthly social evenings. Members of the Trust receive our quarterly magazine, The Wharfinger, which contains news of restoration and the many other activities of the Trust. We would very much value your support as a Member of the Herefordshire & Gloucester Canal Trust.

Please help us restore the Hereford & Gloucester Canal by joining the Trust TODAY! Subscription rates start from as little as £7.50 per annum.

You can subscribe here and now by completing the On-Line Application Form below, and then making payment.
