Here To Help

The Trust is managed by a committee of volunteers.  Our aim is to keep abreast with issues affecting the canal and to help you, the users, to make full use of this unique Westcountry resource, whether your interests are in nature, fishing, archaeology, walking, cycling... Or whatever.

We are, left to right:


Denis Dodd (Archivist),Trevor White (Treasurer), Robert Hodgson (Chair), Hugh Dalzell (Secretary), Robert Horsey (Company Secretary), Val Whitcombe (Newsletter) and Chris Whitcombe.

We are passionate about preserving the GWC’s environment and conserving its unique artefacts. 

We meet at intervals of roughly 6 weeks but we are too few to do all the things we’d like to do. 

Val will always welcome canal related copy for the newsletter;  Denis welcomes all enthusiastic diggers for his work parties; we would love to have more walk leaders.


If you share our passion for the Grand Western, please consider taking on a role as Trustee and
let’s put the GWC back on the map!
