Thames & Severn Canal

The Thames & Severn Canal was completed in 1789, providing a link from the River Severn with the River Thames. It connected directly with the Thames at Lechlade, while the link to the Severn was provided via the Stroudwater Canal. The Thames & Severn Canal was 36 miles in length, and also had spurs to the towns of Swindon and Cirencester. The canal had 15 locks as well as Sapperton Tunnel, a 2-mile long tunnel beneath the Cotswold hills.

The canal closed in stages between 1927 and 1933 and is currently disused. The Cotswold Canal Trust is working to restore it: LinkExternal link
