Project to reopen Grantham Canal to boats


A project is under way to restore two locks on a canal in Lincolnshire.

Built 200 years ago, the locks at Woolsthorpe have fallen into disrepair since the Grantham Canal closed to boats in 1929.

It is hoped a bid for lottery funding will enable parts of the canal to be reopened in the future.
