ABOUT US

Oakham Canal Green Corridor Project aims to create a linear heritage, environment and leisure facility to the north of Oakham, based around the former Oakham Canal. We aim to work with landowners, tenant farmers and other groups to:

·       Engage the local community in developing and maintaining this important leisure corridor. 

·       Preserve the remains of the Oakham Canal as a heritage asset and provide historical interpretation. 

·       Enhance the environment, improving footpaths and public access while developing habitats and diversity.

​The Green Corridor will start at the Springfield Estate in the south and end close to the Oakham Enterprise Park. Ultimately it may be possible to extend the corridor further north towards Rocks by Rail.
