Thank you to Rosemary Carter, who said “This weeks Photo is of Coleford Aqueduct otherwise known locally as the Huckyduck, which is also the name of one of Coleford’s Carnival clubs.”
Many thanks to Jonathan Griffin who said: “This week we’re back in Coleford looking at the ‘Hucky Duck’ (aqueduct) in the aftermath of the great storm of May 1906. The photograph appears on page 6 of the excellent book ‘Coleford as ‘twere’ published by Coleford Oral History Group, Radstock Museum shop should have some copies for sale, well worth a read!”
