Thousands enjoy Festival
The Melksham Food & River Festival 2018
This year’s Melksham Food & River Festival was even bigger and better than in previous years. For this, its fourth year, the entire free community festival was spread out over the whole weekend, and with over 70 stalls attending on both days, it seemed like most of the town had decided to come along and join in the fun.
Opening of the Studley Grange Section
The dream has come true: the new canal section is opened to the public.
A great day for the Wilts & Berks Canal Trust - supporters, funders, landowners and the public gathered by the Wilts & Berks Canal at Studley Grange, between Royal Wootton Bassett and Swindon, for the formal opening of a new section some 1.2 km in length.
