Rob Burgon, Trip Boat Manager, told Stroud Times what it means to be able to take members of the public back on the water: “We’re hoping that people are going to come out in numbers after the lockdown and take a lovely trip along the canal and get to see the countryside and the restoration as it’s growing, and enjoy some fresh air.”

The Cotswold Canals Trust is a charity run by volunteers. Its origins date back to 1972 when it was the Stroudwater Canal Society. By 1975, the Trust was a registered charity and incorporated for the purpose of preserving, maintaining and improving the Stroudwater Navigation and the Thames & Severn Canal. It was one of the founder members of the Cotswold Canals Partnership when it was formed in 2001 to boost the canal restoration project from west to east.
