High Peak Heritage Crafts has been created as a platform for the community of Whaley Bridge and the surrounding High Peak Area. We exist to bring heritage and family craft activities to our community whilst restoring and preserving the heritage of our treasured Transshipment Warehouse in the Canal Basin.
Whaley Bridge Canal CIC
We conserve Whaley Bridge basin, the Transhipment Warehouse and the towpath up to bridge 32. We run a book shop, a craft centre, the local food bank and act as a local hub and community centre.
FRIENDS OF WHALEY BRIDGE STATION
FoWBS was launched in 2006 by a group of volunteers who want to make the most of Whaley Bridge Station and its heritage. It is frequently heralded as the best kept station on the line and ias in fact the banner photo on the Northern Railway stations page.
MAKING FRIENDS MEMORIES HISTORY
What we do…
All the events we manage and all the funds we raise go back into the running of the project and keeping the building open; this includes, but isn’t limited to: The Food Bank, Men’s Shed, Craft and Chat, FAB Market, Books at the Basin and High Peak Heritage Crafts. We welcome donations of anything that helps these and other activities, including volunteers.
HOW YOU CAN HELP
Our aim is to bring people together to rejuvenate and maintain one of the town’s great assets and links to the past. We want to create a village green type space for the town, bringing a range of events and activities that not only bring something that enriches the community but puts them at the heart of it.
You can help us to achieve this either by volunteering as a helper or by making donations.
We are always looking for more volunteers to join us. You can do as much or as little as you wish, every little bit helps. Bring your energy and vision to help our cause.
Our main volunteer day is on the 1st Sunday of each month, Noon until 3pm.
