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.  

In doing this you will help us to provide a cafe and meeting rooms available for the use of local people and businesses in a beautiful and tranquil location.

With your help we have already repaired the roof of the warehouse using 80% of the existing tiles and now work is ongoing inside the warehouse to get it ready for the installation of the new Cafe.

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? Take a virtual tour at:

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

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

Yours sincerely

Alan Boney
