Etherow Country Park in Compstall is looking at new ways to improve this very important heritage village. They have already had work done to restore the Old Pump House and winding gear and re-laid a cobbled path.
The Trust has been invited to discussions on how these objectives can be achieved.
The aim is to lift and preserve this 160 year old barge as well as safeguarding other industrial features of the area, also providing new information boards and better signs to help the public get the most out of the Park.
This is already a Green Flag Park and with the improvements intended will become even better.
