The big clean-up operation was made possible through cash awarded to Our Place Camelon and Tamfourhill by the Falkirk Great Place Heritage Lottery funded project, and with the support of Scottish Canals, Conservation Voluneers Scotland and Falkirk Council Waste Services.

Focusing on the stretch of canal which runs from Lock 16 and passes through the heart of Camelon to the Falkirk Wheel, the clear up began yesterday.
