The Friends of the Grand Western Canal is for all who enjoy the South West's grandest attraction!

Some enjoy the Grand Western for Olympic training; others want nothing more than a relaxing walk with the dog on a winter morning.  The canal is home to trail-boats and narrow-boats as well as enjoyed by visiting paddlers and canoeists. It hosts a staggering variety of wildlife and some of the finest fishing in the South West. 


Whatever floats your boat, if it's connected with the Grand Western Canal then we are here for you!
