The charity making life better by water

Sunny day, with boats moored up at Saul Junction, Gloucester & Sharpness Canal

Saul Junction

Saul Junction is where the Gloucester & Sharpness Canal meets the Stroudwater Canal and was a great meeting place for ships and crew, boats and boaters from around the world. Yes, we did say ships because Saul Junction is on the route the tall ships take from the River Severn to Gloucester Docks a few miles up the canal.

Today the junction is still popular with boaters and there are many lovely walks along the idyllic waterways. Nearby is Saul Junction Marina and Saul Junction Visitor Centre.
