Description

Saul Junction Lock is now redundant and located off an arm of the original Stroud Water Navigation on the Gloucester & Sharpness Canal at Saul Junction.  The lock is to be refurbished, with new lock gates installed, landscaping, new benches and interpretation. The works will take place between 20th June and 15th August. The canal navigation will not be affected. However the Towpath will have a short diversion around the lock rather than over the bridge on the lock. Towpath Diversions will be well advertised. Part of the visitor’s car park will be closed and used for a site compound. Once the works have been completed the area can be used as an educational resource and an ‘Out door museum’ for the pleasure of all.
