Montgomery Canal Restoration

October. 2013

    In spite of adverse weather conditions , progress is still being made.

The SUCS Work group have continued with restoration of the Redwith to Pryces Bridge section.

The photos below show some of their work.

Back to the News Page.

Thanks to the efforts and dedication of volunteers, full restoration of the canal is definitely becoming much nearer.

(And re-filling his tank ???).

Looking towards Redwith Bridge.  (And praying for dry weather!!).

In spite of heavy rain showers, work continued.

And a rainbow at last shone over their work.

Looking back along the latest restoration section.

Profiling in progress.

By the site of the culvert.

More liner and blocks have been laid.

Looking towards Redwith, past the site of the culvert.

The site profile is now ready for its new liner.

At last, this section is almost ready.

(And the canal can’t wait to get back in water).

In spite of terrible weather experienced at times, the restoration

continues whenever it is practicable to do so.

Keeping the area dry was a problem.

Getting the levels to meet.
