Gloucester Docks &
the Sharpness Canal


Saul 2007

The 11th annual Saul Canal Festival with Folk on the Water, due to be held over the weekend 29 June to 1 July, had to be cancelled because key parts of the site were flooded just as preparations were getting underway
. This page shows three photos taken on 25 June when the difficult decision to cancel had to be made.

for the trader's campsite and the general car park.
