Dredging near Hope Mills
Volunteers from the Cotswold Canals Trust continue the significant task of removng some 15,000 cubic metres of silt from the Thames & Severn Canal between Ham MIll Lock, Thrupp and the canal infilling at Hope Mills, Brimscombe. This is a total distance of about 600m.
The pictures below show that removing tree roots and fallen branches are all part of the challenge.
