Royal Wootton Bassett Branch
The branch story
We have a lovely length of restored canal just to the south of Royal Wootton Bassett, accessed from Station Road. The easterly end was one of the first lengths to be restored with the co-operation of Wootton Bassett Town Council. The restoration of Chaddington Lock, near Chaddington Lane (aka Bincknoll Lane) was followed by building the spillweir and digging out the canal above and below the lock.
Over the last two years a project to take the canal back along the east side of Studley Grange landfill site has been proceding and is nearly complete.
