Special thanks to the following people and their businesses for their invaluable contributions:-


Barry D Hughes:- author of “Rolle Canal & The North Devon Limestone Trade.
Member of The Rolle Canal Society and the North Devon Maritime Trust. Thanks to Barry for all his advice, support, physical assistance, and permission to use images from his book.





John Gordon:- friend, neighbour and member of The Rolle Canal Society. Without John’s help, especially in erecting scaffolding as well as giving me the benefit of his years of experience as a civil engineer, the restoration program would have been seriously delayed.

His machine has been worth its weight in gold.
