Cotswold Canals in Pictures

About the Cotswold Canals in Pictures Website

The Cotswold Canals In Pictures (CCiP) website illustrates the Stroudwater Canal (or Navigation) and Thames & Severn Canal through some 1,000+ photographs from more than 240 locations along the canals. These show the restoration progress, surviving structures, obstructions to navigation and other points of interest where access to the canals has been possible.

The site includes a number of articles about various aspects of the canals and their history.
