The restoration of the Kennet & Avon - was it worth it? A talk organised by the Newbury Society.
Rob Dean, chairman of the Kennet and Avon Canal Trust, talks about the consequences of restoring the canal. Rob was elected chairman of the Kennet and Avon Canal Trust in 2012, taking over at the beginning of the following year.
He had previously been active as treasurer and then chairman of the Newbury branch of the Trust, and a leading figure in the Newbury Waterways Festival. Following experience in the diplomatic service, he was created a Companion of the Order of St. Michael and St. George (CMG) in 2012.
