HER­ITAGE UPS AND DOWNS

Canal Boat - - News -

The an­nual re­port into the state of the Canal & River Trust’s her­itage struc­tures shows that the to­tal num­ber listed on ‘her­itage at risk’ reg­is­ters has re­mained con­stant at 24 – but this over­all fig­ure masks some good and bad news. On the neg­a­tive side, the Grade 2 listed Stain­ton Aqueduct on the Lan­caster was added to the list fol­low­ing se­vere dam­age in last win­ter’s floods. How­ever, fol­low­ing re­pairs, James Bridge Aqueduct on the BCN was taken off the at risk list. CRT is op­ti­mistic that progress on Soul­bury Pump­house, Saul Junc­tion Lock, the Birm­ing­ham Round­house and Fox’s Kiln at Glouces­ter will lead to some of these be­ing re­moved from the reg­is­ters next year.
