Rickmansworth Waterways Trust is raising funds to build a new Education Centre at Batchworth Lock following approval of plans by Three Rivers District Council on 26th May 2017.

  • It will include a classroom, an office, storage, a small kitchen and toilets for the use of the children, teachers and volunteers
  • It will be a high quality single storey wooden construction
  • It will have disabled access and provide an ideal environment for delivering Learning at the Lock and other education programmes for both adults and children
  • The Trust envisages that the proposed building will provide a facility that local groups and the general public can use

With the funds identified so far we are now well over half way to our initial estimate for the building of £250,000.

If you want to help us reach our target you can help by buying £10 shares in logs for the building.

Feel free to buy as few shares or as many as you would like and if you are a UK tax payer we can claim the gift aid and so each £10 share contributes £12.50 towards the building. If you would like to help you can download the form with all the details here.
