Meet the people

John Stafford has been supervisor of the Western end of the Caledonian Canal for 14 years and has been with Scottish Canals for a total of 16 years, having been a lock keeper prior to his current position.

Mr Stafford used to run a small supermarket in Corpach before he started working on the canal.

‘A friend had a friend got me into the job. He said it was an interesting job and a good job for me with my customer care background,’ he says.

He is now responsible for overall operations of west district, which covers from Fort William and Corpach up to Loch Lochy, and is responsible for boat movement, general maintenance jobs, and anything else which pops up. Speaking about his role, Mr Stafford said: ‘Every day is different, there’s not really any parts of the job I don’t like.’
