The Stroud Valleys Canal Company is the registered charity set up to look after the western section of the Cotswold Canals. It controls most of the canal from a point about 1km east of Saul Junction through to and including Brimscombe Port which is about 2.5 miles east of Stroud. We have produced a guide for users of the Cotswold Canals - please click here to view it.
SVCC will act as navigation authority for the canal and is responsible for issuing boat licenses and mooring permits and angling permits. Please follow the canal user links for more information.
