ShIPS group is very excited to have just launched a new website which pulls together all research and insights gathered over the last two years about the Ship Inn site and more. It includes our vision, presentations, reports, feasibility studies of the area, along with case studies from other canal projects around the UK which have benefitted from canal regeneration – economically, socially and environmentally.

Take a look at our site

Clear signage for passing visitors will help to link the canal to the town and encourage people to venture into our high street cafés and shops. A wharf at the Ship Inn site will mean that canal users will be encouraged to stop and visit the businesses in our award-winning town in bloom, whilst also perhaps enjoying a circular walk up to Doverow and back, rather than remaining oblivious and passing us by on their way to Stroud or Saul.
