Thames Head Pumping Station

Near Wallbridge Lower Lock, Stroud

The channel above Wallbridge Lock has now been widened and a new revetment added to support the bank.
The canal channel has also been widened and dredged between Lodgemore Bridge and Wallbridge Lower Lock (below). The bridge, however, has yet to be replaced.

Griffin's Mill Lock

On Tuesday July 1 new gates were installed at Griffin's Mill Lock on the Thames & Severn Canal at Thrupp, near Stroud.

This marks the culmination of several years work by volunteers from the Waterway Recovery Group (WRG) and the Cotswold Canals Trust to restore this lock.

There is still work to complete at the lock, including the fitting of paddle gear. (Posted 04/07/2014. Updated 27/07/2014)
