Cotswold Canals pass the final hurdle

We're delighted to report that, earlier this evening, Stroud District Council voted to take on the restoration project for the Cotswold Canals' "phase 1a" (the Stroudwater and Thames & Severn Canal from the Ocean, Stonehouse, to Brimscombe Port).

The restoration was jeopardised when British Waterways pulled out last year. SDC has now agreed to become lead partner and, crucially, to take on the £11.9m grant from the Heritage Lottery Fund.

Congratulations to the Cotswold Canals Trust and all involved.
