A water feeder channel has just been created between the new channel at Capels Mill and Wallbridge Lock. A special Swedish-designed and built amphibious excavator was used.

The Stroud District Council-led Cotswold Canals Project is undertaking the reopening of the waterways and its spokesman Dave Marshall said: "This was a stop gap measure."
