Cotswold Canals in Pictures

The Cotswold Canals in Pictures Website

Cotswold Canals in Pictures shows the Stroudwater Navigation and Thames & Severn Canal through some 800+ photographs. Parts of these canals either have been, or are being, restored.

The website also includes a number of articles about different aspects of the canals including Sapperton Tunnel and Thames Head Pumping Station. More articles are planned and will be added to in due course.

Site Evolution

In 2002 the first version of the website was launched which was based on a photographic survey of the canals undertaken in 1986.

Since then, accessible locations along the canals have been revisited and photographed many times to record any changes, including progress of the ongoing restoration.
