Canal and River Trust

Prof Gatrad’s friendship with John Hudson OBE has been God sent. He has facilitated all the work that is done by the Prof through Bashir Ahmed – one of the managers of the Waterways. The latter organises canal visits/canal cleans by various organisations through WASUP. There have already been 2 trips organised at Birchills and many more are planned.

If you’re from a Waterways Organisation in the region, or anywhere in the UK and would like to be featured here, then please contact Dr Gatrad on
