Claverton Pumping Station Engineman’s house

As some of you are aware the Claverton Pumping Station group have been trying to save the cottage from being sold by The Canal and River Trust for a short term gain. They have asked if they could take it over and turn it into a Canal and Claverton Visitor Center. The building would be restored by volunteers where ever possible. So far in after twelve months of thought and a costly inaccurate Viability Study by an outside tourism consultant and little communication CRT have decided that they still wish to sell. The group finally have a meeting with CRT planned for early May but they seem to have little to offer to Claverton Pumping Station One of their new members has started an online petition please sign it and forward it to anyone you know who may also sign. This may be of help in changing CRT`s mind and or strengthen our negotiating position the link is below
