Gloucester Canoe Club Base

Our ‘Club house’ is to be part of the new Gloucester Paddle Sport complex being built on the West bank of the Gloucester & Sharpness Canal on the outskirts of Gloucester.  The access point is at the lights on the new South Western bypass signpost for Hempstead Meadows.  This is where the weekly market takes place.

At the moment this is very much a building site but the slipway provision is in place together with a large paved preparation area and now the steelwork is up and ready for the next phase.  We will have access to significant storage provision and many of the facilities including changing and shower rooms.  This certainly is a significant improvement on our current facilities – we look forward to the opening.

The map on the right can be viewed and used for accurate directions.

The building has started.  Contractors moved in during April 2016 and opened up the preparation work that was done last year.  We don’t have a completing date yet and it won’t be ready for this years Hasler Race.  The images below are artists impressions and already we know of some changes, especially under the balcony!
