Cotswold Canals in Pictures

Cotswold Canals Restoration - Phase 2

The Phase 2 restoration section of the Cotswold Canals is between Gateway Bridge, in the Cotswold Water Park and Inglesham near Lechlade. Inglesham is where the Thames & Severn Canal joins the River Thames.

Some of the achievements to date on this section include:

Current work in progress includes:

  • Re-building of Weymoor Bridge, Latton (2019 - virtually complete)
  • Restoration of Inglesham Lock (2019, structure only - virtually complete)

Significant challenges on this section of the canal are land ownership and several miles of infilling around the village of Kempsford.

The length of the Phase 2 restoration section is about 10 miles (16 km).
