City Centre Waterways WALK and TALK

The Chelmer Canal Trust are offering an explanatory walk and talk for those who want to know more about the waterways in Chelmsford, how they work and, importantly, the two current options for linking them. Should Chelmsford have one more lock, or more water frontage and a level link between Springfield Basin and the rivers? It now appears that a new lock is the option favoured by council officials.
Originally conceived in 1985, but opposed by past council leadership, a change in the political nature of the City Council has made the link far more likely, but the link may look very different to how some have imagined it.
This event will start with a short illustrated talk in the Chelmsford Canoe Club, after which there will be a guided walk around the important parts of Chelmsford’s waterways infrastructure so that you can see at first hand what we have now, and what we could have in the future.
Chelmsford Canoe Club,
