Cotswolds canal network restoration a step closer

Attempts to bring a stretch of canal back to Stroud and Stonehouse in Gloucestershire have been awarded lottery money.

The £842,000 Heritage Lottery Fund grant "gives the green light" to develop the plans further and to apply for a bigger £9m pot of funding.

Stroud District Council and the Cotswold Canals Trust have been trying to connect the area back to the UK's network of canals since 2009, so far restoring 4.5 miles of canal - from Wallbridge to Bowbridge - nine locks and six miles of towpath.

Another four miles of the network is now the focus: the Stroud and Stonehouse section will link to the Gloucester and Sharpness Canal.

The project also aims to re-build a "missing" mile-long section of the waterway that was destroyed when the M5 was built. It will travel underneath the M5 at Eastington.

The canal in the Cotswolds dates back to 1779. It was joined with the Thames and Severn Canal at Wallbridge in 1789.
