Cotswolds Canal Camp 2024 - week 5
Back

Cotswold Canals Trust aims to reopen the route from the Thames at Inglesham to the Gloucester & Sharpness Canal at Saul, with a phased approach. Phase 1a from Stonehouse to Brimscombe is largely complete; work is in hand on Phase 1b to re-connect this to the canal system at Saul. Phase 2 (including Weymoor Bridge) will restore the eastern end from Inglesham to the Cotswold Water Park. Finally, Phase 3 will tackle the difficult central section from the Water Park to Brimscombe.

At Weymoor Bridge (part of phase 2), a stream crosses the canal via channel cut through the canal bed. Before the canal can be reopened, this stream needs diverting to run through a new culvert.

The work on two Camps this summer is build a new concrete channel to carry the canal over the culvert by the rebuilt Weymoor Bridge, including formwork, reinforcement, and casting the concrete.

Waterway underfunding

Hundreds of miles of waterways – along with their unique heritage and habitats – are currently starved of funding and rely on constant lobbying by us to safeguard their future.

Sustainable Boating

We want boating on canals and rivers to be more sustainable and – even though the current overall contribution to UK carbon emissions is very small – we want to help reduce emissions on the waterways.

Waterways Heritage at Risk

Britain’s canals and rivers are a unique, living heritage. But that heritage is at risk – from urban development, lack of protection, loss of skills and knowledge and climate change.

You can help Save Waterways Heritage.

Waterway restoration

Restoring the UK’s blue infrastructure – our inherited network of navigable canals and rivers – is good for people and places.
