We aim to encourage the people living in the communities along the canal to take an interest in it and help maintain it as a pleasant amenity for boating, walking, cycling or fishing.
To this end, The Bridge 19-40 Union Canal Society’s main activities include:
We run our boat trips from Port Buchan in Broxburn but our boats are moored at Drumshoreland Basin, the Union Canal base of Scottish Canals.
The Bridge 19-40 Union Canal Society is a registered charity (SC023110) run solely by volunteers and supported by donations and income from events and boat trips.
The Bridge 19-40 Union Canal Society is part of The Big Splash, an appeal to help support the many small waterway-based charitiesin our local communities to ensure their survival during these unprecedented times.
Due to the current Coronavirus pandemic, and the difficulty in maintaining social distancing on a narrowboat, we regret that we are unable to offer boat trips in 2020. We can still be contacted by telephone, email or via our facebook page.
Please follow us on facebook for updates on the current situation and canal news in general.
