Visit to the Cotswold Canals by members of ARCABE (Accociation for the reopening of the Canal du Berry)


At the end of April 2010 two members of a French canal restoration group (ARCABE) visited various sections of the Cotswold Canals to see CCT progress and discuss how both canal societies could mutually benefit from a link between them.

There was press coverage in Stroud and a BBC TV news item on Monday 26 April showing the cermonial mixing of water from the Canal du Berry into Wallbridge Lock.

See the ARCABE website and the CCT websites.
