Welcome to the Ancoats Canal Project! 

We are a group of residents, working in partnership with the Canal and River Trust to make more of the Rochdale and Ashton canals that run through Ancoats. We hold monthly events to clean up the canals and encourage people to use and enjoy them.

Each month we keep up with our regular activities such as installing and maintaining garden areas, litter picks (always LOTS of litter picking!), clearing the wash walls and towpaths and generally trying to encourage biodiversity.

New to Ancoats? We’re always looking for people to help at our events, so if you’re interested please join our Facebook group or come down to our next event!

We look forward to seeing you soon on the canal!
