About the Trust Trust News
Chris Coyle on Castledown Radio

Following news that the restoration of the canal had been filmed for the BBC programme 'Escape to the Country', we were contacted by a local radio station in Wiltshire for an interview. 

Castledown Radio serves Tidworth and the surrounding area.  They are featuring canals, and were keen to find out more about the Wilts & Berks.  Chris Coyle was invited to their studio for a live interview, which lasted about fifteen minutes in total.  The interview covered the history of the canal, when and why it became derelict, our restoration progress, and our plans for the future.  Of particular interest was the Melksham Link, our plan for the new stretch of canal rejoining Melksham to the Kennet and Avon Canal.
