Constuction Volunteer (Lock-up Project) – Sussex Ouse Restoration Trust

About the Sussex Ouse Restoration Trust

The River Ouse rises in the high land of the Sussex Weald and flows across attractive, gently undulating countryside. At Lewes it passes through a gap in the South Downs and out into the wide Ouse Valley before reaching the sea at the south coast port of Newhaven.
The Sussex Ouse Restoration Trust believes the river is a priceless asset to its surrounding communities and aims to promote a greater awareness of the benefits that the river can bestow on these communities. SORT works with other interested agencies for the conservation of the ancient structures associated with the river’s history, the restoration of navigation to the river above Lewes, protection of the river’s banks and wildlife, and improvement of opportunities for educational and leisure use.

About this opportunity

Task is to clear, clean and rebuild the lock at Isfield. Volunteers needed for digging and bricklaying etc. Hardhats and jackets provided. The work started in April 2010 and we continue to work when ever the weather allows throughout the year but mainly from April to September.

April – September we work on Thursdays and Saturdays – starting about 9am’ish.

During the winter months we normally just met on a Thursday from 9am.
