Gloucester Docks &
the Sharpness Canal


Saul Canal Festival 2006

The 10th Saul Canal Festival with Folk on the Water, held over the weekend 29 June to 2 July, provided visitors with a wonderful mixture of boats, music, trade stands and family entertainment.

Organised by volunteers from the Cotswold Canals Trust, and supported by sponsors, the event raised thousands of pounds towards the restoration of the Stroudwater and Thames & Severn Canals.

Pictured right is NB Bellatrix which won the cup for the best turned-out commercial vessel.


Festival boats were moored along both sides of
the canal to the north of Saul Junction.

Visitors could go on board this fine pair of hotel

NB Lynx taking part in the boat parade which
was a popular feature of the weekend.

These restored working boats are looked after
by members of the Narrow Boat Trust.
