  • Athina Beckett reveals the latest news on the restoration of Bridge No1 and details yet another record breaking year for corporate volunteer group attendances.
  • Terry Cavender explains in some detail about the preparation work needed for the restoration of Bridge No1, the funding that has enabled the project and why part of the Old Stratford Cut is currently ‘in water’.
  • Doug Pell provides an in-depth and up-to-date account of the history and restoration works of Bridge No1.
  • Dave Humphreys recalls a rather informative and useful trip to the Canal & River Trust Archive with Anthony Smith-Roberts, in the hope of discovering more about a recently unearthed stone platform near Cosgrove.
  • Athina Beckett tells us about how her narrowboat Brown Trout pays it’s way.
