Chippenham Museum and Heritage Centre would like to put out an appeal for memorabilia, photographs and stories that members may have relating to the Berks & Wilts Canal, particularly the Chippenham Branch, for an exhibition we will be holding next year.
The exhibition will be in conjunction with the publication of a new book about the 'Chippenham Branch' charting the history of the development of the canal in and around the town.
The town was served by a two mile branch, which left the main line of the Wilts & Berks at Pewsham, just above the locks, and terminated at what is now the bus station, in Timber Street.
The exhibition will run from 9th May until 25th July 2011.
