The Heritage Centre is located in a 19th century old stable which has been refurbished to provide information about the canal and its history.

The newly refurbished Heritage Centre will be open by the early Summer of 2019. Through displays and interactive screens, visitors will be able to follow the course of the canal’s history from exciting concept to commercial failure. And through neglect and restoration to the successful recreational area and important wildlife corridor that it is today.

We have been working closely with students from Chichester College. They have designed our new space. The student construction teams will begin work in January, gaining real life experience as part of their college course.

We look forward to welcoming you this year.
