Montgomery Canal Camp CC202402

 Registration is closed for this event
The work: Finishing off works at the new Schoolhouse Bridge, including removing a temporary road which carried traffic while the bridge was under construction.

The reason: Following the 2023 reopening of a newly restored length of canal to Crickheath Wharf, attention has shifted to the next section south. Plans are under way for channel lining, the new bridge has removed the last major obstruction on the English side of the border, and any work we do will help get the canal open through into Wales.

The restoration: After over 50 years’ work, more than half of the canal is already open including a continuous

12-mile Welsh length from Arddleen through Welshpool to Refail. Major Government grants are helping to  support further work on the Welsh section, and there are good prospects for connecting this up to the English

length at Llanymynech in the not too distant future. Completion south to Newtown could then follow on.
