The Shrewsbury and Newport Canal

Bernie Jones, chairman of the Shrewsbury and Newport Canal Trust and Julie Harris, Trustee, talk about the prospects for restoring this abandoned canal.

It ran originally from Shrewsbury to Trench, now in modern day Telford, to join up with the tub-boat canals of the Industrial Revolution. It was later extended via Newport to Norbury Junction in Staffordshire.
