Cotswold Canals write: Wallbridge Lower Lock – Thames & Severn Canal – August 2015. With the junction between the Stroudwater Navigation (adjacent to the infilled Wallbridge Basin) and the Thames & Severn Canal dredged in 2014, restoration of the entrance lock to the Thames & Severn Canal is well under way, with teams of enthusiastic volunteers from Waterway Recovery Group spending their summer holiday really making a difference, and taking great pride in their work. With the newly constructed fish and eel passes in operation (taking the flow of the Slad brook around the lock), stop planks have been fitted and the lock chamber has been cleared of silt and debris ranging from car tyres to discarded office furniture. Note the iron band along the face of the offside coping stones, which appears to be a unique feature of this lock. WRG work camp volunteers have also been working at Bowbridge lock throughout August 2015. Never before, has Stroud seen so many youngsters wearing red safety helmets.
