Join Cotswold Canals Connected on Wednesday 26th October from 10am - 4pm for some Half Term fun! ๐Ÿฅณ

This free event involves a canal-side trail from Newtown Lock to Westfield Bridge (Eastington, Stonehouse). A special map will be provided that highlights the wonderful heritage locks and local history. These maps will be available to download prior to the event and members of the CCC team will also be handing them out along the route on the day. ๐Ÿ—บ

On the canal towpath you will find Cotswold Canals Connected (CCC) volunteers speaking about the various locks and how this enables boats to go up hill, as well as stalls from the CCC team and partners. This part of the event does not need to be booked and can be accessed at any time between 10am - 4pm. ๐Ÿ•™๐Ÿ•“

The other part of the event is a sneak peek into Cotswold Canals Trustโ€™s Western Depot. This is the very first time the newly refurbished bustling workshop will be open to the public! ๐Ÿฅณ

Western Depot is run solely by Cotswold Canals Trust volunteers for the purpose of maintaining and restoring the canal. At the depot there are metal and wood workshops that are used to manufacture or repair a wide variety of objects for the canal; from building lock gates, to fixing lawn mowers and everything in between. On the day you will experience a tour of the busy depot and mini activity workshops will be available for children. ๐Ÿ›
