The Heritage Heroes Project has been short listed for one of the Historic England Angel Awards categories.
WBCT and our team at Pewsham Top Locks Project was one of four canal restoration charities who took part in the Heritage Heroes Project organised by Canal River Trust and funded by Peoples Post Code Lottery; where wounded and sick service personnel and veterans helped volunteers in performing vital restoration work on some of England's oldest canals including the Wilts & Berks. It is this project, which WBCT were proud to be part of, that has been short listed for one of the Historic England Angel Awards categories.
