Volunteers help 'at risk' Caldon canal bridge

Work is under way to help restore a 200-year-old canal bridge in the Staffordshire Moorlands.

Volunteers have been carrying out conservation work on the pointing and brickwork bridge on the Caldon canal in Cheddleton which is deemed "at risk".

Julie Arnold, from the Caldon and Uttoxeter Canals Trust said they hope to secure that and planned further work with British Waterways.

She said it was an important stretch to preserve.

"The work will secure the bridge," she said.

"It's actually become 'at risk' - the pointing and brickwork and stonework - so we're going to work to secure that and then do some some further improvements over the next few months working with British Waterways."
