Places where known infilling of 50m or more has occurred on the Stroudwater and Thames & Severn Canals between Saul Junction and Inglesham.
At first sight the list below might seem a bit daunting. However, the majority of infilling, by distance, is on agricultural land, which would be relatively easy and inexpensive to re-instate from an engineering perspective.
