Grand Western Restoration Ahead of Schedule
17th September 2013
Devon County Council has reported that restoration work on the Grand Western is ahead of schedule due to the recent period of dry weather. In November last year, flooding caused a breach on the Canal at Halberton. Restoration work to repair the breach began in July and has so far focussed on rebuilding the embankment and the building up of the canal bed.
