From Saul to Stonehouse

The reopening of the west end from Saul to Stonehouse will be a focus for restoration over the coming years – including reinstating the ‘missing mile’ just east of our canal camp site.

The Lottery-funded Phase 1a section (Stonehouse to Brimscombe) is mostly complete. A provisionally approved second Lottery grant would reopen the all-important Phase 1b (Stonehouse to Saul), linking the restored section to the national network at Saul. We won’t know if the multi-million pound grant has got its final approval until autumn 2020, but any initial work we do on this work) improves the chances of it being confirmed
