The Shropshire Union Canal Society was formed in 1966 to protect, enhance and restore the canals of the historic Shropshire Union Railways and Canal Company. We have been actively engaged in restoring the Montgomery Canal since 1969. The Society has also installed mooring rings and other facilities at 78 locations around the SU system.

We are currently working to restore the channel between Bridges 84 and 85 of the Montgomery Canal, part of the 2.75 miles of dry canal that separates the isolated part of the Montgomery from the national network.

If you would like to join our work, please see the Restoration page for more details. To join the Society, please see the Membership page.

The Society is a registered charity and a Limited Company.



Restore the Montgomery Canal Appeal launched

The Appeal was launched on 26th April and is aiming to raise 2 miles of £2 coins for £250,000 to help the restoration. Learn more at Restore the Montgomery Canal
