Wey&Arun Canal Camp CC202403 – Rooks Hill Bridge

This event is currently full.
The Canal Camp work: Starting on a project to build a brand new traditional style brick arch bridleway bridge (and later a new lock), including creating formwork, reinforcing, pouring concrete, bricklaying and machinery work

The reason: Following completion of the two new lift bridges and restored canal at Birtley, the Wey & Arun Canal Trust is keen to extend this section southwards. The new lock and bridge (replacing missing structures) represent a major step in this direction.

The restoration: The Wey & Arun Canal Trust aims to reopen the entire through route from the River Wey  navigation above Guildford to the River Arun and the South Coast. Several significant lengths have been completed, including the Loxwood Link length of around three miles and five locks plus shorter sections from Malham to Newbridge, on the summit at Dunsfold and elsewhere. Both of the projects supported by 2024 canal camps will be helping to close the gaps between these existing restored sections.
