The section of canal by the former Dudbridge Wharf was restored during 2012.
An original canal crane is behind the fence on the towpath-side of the canal, above the new footbridge at Hilly Orchard. The crane is the only one that survives on the two canals, and is now Grade 2 listed. Note that the crane itself is on private property.
The Gloucestershire Society for Industrial Archaeology (GSIA) have published two articles about the crane. Visit their website for details:
