Gloucester Docks &
the Sharpness Canal


Saul Canal Festival 2004

Record numbers of boats, campers and day visitors attended the annual Saul Canal Festival and Folk on the Water Weekend on 3 & 4 July 2004

Visitors could see a wide variety of boats, browse the trade and charity stands and enjoy a range of musical and theatrical entertainments. The event was organised by the volunteers of the Cotswold Canals Trust to raise money and support for the restoration of the canal link to the Thames at Lechlade.
