SNCT Oral History Project

A team of SNCT members have spent several years recording interviews with a range of folk who either remember the S&N from their childhood or, in a few cases, from working on the canals in days gone by, including the last lengthsman on the Shrewsbury Canal. The interviewees cover a range of topics and talk about the areas around Shrewsbury, Telford (including Wappenshall), Newport & Norbury Junction.

A collection of over forty recordings have been made and these have now been catalogued by Shropshire Archives, along with their associated transcripts, and can be accessed by any member of Shropshire Libraries. The following link will take you direct to the archive:
