Dredging near Hope Mills

On Saturday December 6 the Cotswold Canals Trust Dredger was craned into the canal near Hope Mills in Brimscombe.

The aim initially is to clear the canal of silt and reeds between the blockage at Hope Mills and Ham Mill Lock. After that, the pounds below Ham Mill Lock and Griffins Mill Lock will be cleared.
