In the past the Wilts & Berks Canal was never well documented.  There are so few contemporary pictures of the working canal to make it next to impossible to visualise how the canal looked during its useful life.

    This makes it essential for us to actively seek out what material there is.  Surprisingly little gems do turn up: the Pall Mall article,
"In Tow", discovered by Graham Escott is a perfect example.

AND SO:.........
                       If you have anything about the Wilts & Berks Canal, from any era (inception to the present time), in any format (parchment to digital video) then please contact us so that we can build up a comprehensive archive for the future.  We can copy anything!

    Especially important are photographs, films and videos taken in the last few years when so much has altered so dramatically.

    If you do have anything then do please contact me:
