Abandoned and forgotten for nearly 140 years, a section of Lord Rolle's Canal, sometimes known as The Torrington Canal, is once again coming to light near Weare Giffard.
Since first investigating a "damp depression" in their riverside grazing land at Annery Kiln, a couple: Adrian and Hilary Wills have spent the past 18 years slowly uncovering a half-mile section of what was once an important industrial highway.
After years of clearing undergrowth and digging out tons of mud, to reveal the waterway and also create a wildlife haven - recently designated a Devon County Wildlife Site - this summer has brought a major construction milestone with the arrival of teams of volunteers for a restoration project of the sea lock which formed the entrance of the canal.
More than two-dozen volunteers from The Rolle Canal and Northern Devon Waterways Society have come from as far afield as Dublin, Glasgow and even France for two, week-long, work camps at the site to uncover and restore remains of the once vital link and mode of transport.
Some are working towards Duke of Edinburgh awards, some have tried other voluntary work and are looking for something different and some are just captivated by canals.
