Wednesday 24th April at 7.30pm, an illustrated talk by Louise Nicholson

Last year the Georgian Group gave their prestigious ‘Green Award’ to Cotswold Canals Trust, citing ‘exemplary conservation and restoration projects, achieved by people with vision and commitment’.  That vision began in the 1970s when Stroud Valley residents began a crazily ambitious volunteer project to revive the handsome stone-built Georgian canals to be a ribbon of landscape to benefit nature and the community for free, forever.  Louise tells this remarkable and uplifting story.

To see work in progress, please join her and Mike Howarth on Saturday 27 April.  Meet at 9.30am by the canal in front of Stonehouse Court Hotel, to walk to John Robinson Lock and back.  Cost £5, to book please use this link Book your place on the Walk

or call Louise on 07497 866564.


Louise Nicholson is an art historian and writer living near Stonehouse, whose work focus on India.  She is equally happy sauntering along the canal towpath (pausing at great pubs) as clambering up Cotswold hills (and often losing her way).  She has unbounded admiration for the 900 or so canal restoration volunteers.
