About The Camp
Where is it?
Located in the scenic Cotswolds near Stroud the Cotswold Canals consists of the Thames & Severn Canal and Stroudwater Navigation. It is one of the UK’s Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty.
What will I be doing?
While the Weymoor bridge has been recently restored, the canal underneath it cannot be returned to water until a nearby stream has been diverted and culverted under the canal channel. These two weeks of Canal Camps (CC2023-05/06) will divert the stream and install a syphonic culvert to carry the stream under the bed of the canal. Once installed the canal channel will be reconstructed on top of the culvert.
WHY IS IT IMPORTANT?
While WRG’s main activity will be towards the other end of this restoration project, there is activity all along the waterway. This work will enable the recently restored Weymoor Bridge to be returned to water.
