Great Canal Journeys

Timothy West & Prunella Scales go boating

Actors and narrow-boaters Timothy West & Prunella Scales are to feature in a four part TV series entitled Great Canal Journeys on More 4.

The couple are well known to the boating fraternity in general and the canal restoration movement in particular.

Saul Festival 2006

The couple opened Saul Canal Festival in 2006 and renewed their connection with the Trust at last year’s Braunston Boat show.

Braunston Marina proprietor Tim Coghlan, a keen supporter of the Cotswold Canals Trust, contributed a £200 donation towards the restoration.

Timothy & Prunella are pictured right presenting Tim's cheque to members of the CCT Presentation & Promotion Team.

Great Canal Journeys sees the couple share their enthusiasm for the canals along with some quite touching personal insights into later life.

The first programme featuring the Kennet & Avon Canal will be broadcast at 9pm on Monday 10th March.
