About Us:

Shrewsbury and Newport Canals Trust, winners of the prestigious QAVS (Queens Award for Voluntary Service) aims to restore the historic canal site at Wappenshall Junction in Telford. 

We need your help to restore a grade II listed warehouse and return the canal basin to water.  Please buy your TWINCL tickets to support us in this great enterprise which will benefit the whole of the Telford area.

Joining TWINCL will help us to provide a cafe and meeting rooms available for the use of local people and businesses in this beautiful, tranquil and historic location.

We now have full planning permissions for the project at Wappenshall.  Work is now going at a great pace, thanks to our wonderful volunteers. The excavation of the East basin has taken place and soon work will start on the banks of the canal so that rewatering can take place early in 2020.

This just the first phase on this site.  Future phases will include the restoration of a 3 storey 'transhipment' warehouse and the creation of a 'rolling' museum dedicated to the man our great town is named after Thomas Telford. Want to see more?

Ultimately our aim is the restoration of 24.75 miles of the two canals joining Norbury Junction on the Shropshire Union canal to Shrewsbury via Newport and Telford providing all the health benefits associated with canals and the great outdoors.

You can come and see us at Wappenshall on the 3rd Saturday of every month 10 am until 4pm

There is other work continuing in Newport and we have another group in Shrewsbury who are also working very hard.

Thank you so much for your highly valued support and good luck in the lottery. 

Yours sincerely

Alan Boney
