ABOUT US

We were formed in 1969 to promote the restoration, conservation and improvement of the canal and adjacent waterways for the use and benefit of the public. In 2010, the society changed its name to the Worcester Birmingham & Droitwich Canals Society following the opening of the Droitwich Canals.

CECILIA

The Society owns a 70ft narrowboat ‘CECILIA’. This 8-berth boat is used to offer holidays to groups of people and other charities that would not normally have the opportunity of experiencing the inland waterways.

We hold monthly meetings at the Meeting Room, Alvechurch Boat Centre, Scarfield Wharf, B48 7SQ behind the Weighbridge Pub. Meetings are held on the first Tuesday of every month. In July & August we usually go on a guided walk and meet elsewhere. Visitors are always welcome.
