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.

The centre is run by the Costwold Canals Trust. And while the Canal & River Trust is the charity that cares for 2,000 miles of waterways (including the Gloucester & Sharpness Canal), both charities work together on a number of projects around Saul Junction and the Stroudwater Navigation.
