Restoration Trust

A 'Long and Winding Road'
Doug Small

    The restoration of the Wilts & Berks Canal is a massive undertaking with many, many obstacles to be overcome.  For many years volunteers have beavered away and they have achieved some remarkable progress.  Major projects, such as the Melksham Link, are also underway.

     But, to me, there has always been an area that has, to a great extent, been ignored.  That is the road crossings that will require mega amounts of paperwork and money.

     A count up of these crossings on the main line of the canal alone is about 50.  So I thought I would itemise them.
