Camal repairs 1985/86
Canal repair 1985-1986
In the winter of 1985/86 substantial repairs were made to the Shropshire Union Canal between Cowley Bridge (No. 32) and Cowley Tunnel (No. 33) near Gnosall in Staffordshire. Frank Shenton, a resident at the time recorded on cine film the dangerous condition of overhanging rocks along the canal cutting and some of the repair work undertaken. Gnosall Heritage Group financed the conversion from cine to video. Thanks go to Frank Shenton and the Gnosall Heritage Group for permission to use this footage.
