The Somersetshire Coal Canal Society was founded in 1992. It aims to preserve and restore the canal, and work is now proceeding at Radford near the original Paulton terminus.

The organisation also carries out excavations and historical research, recording the information and disseminating it in talks, meetings, through its Weigh-House magazine and at regular open days.

The society was a partner in the restoration of Midford Aqueduct.

Currently, the regular work parties, with assistance from WRG, are focussing on the navigation near Timsbury and Paulton basins, with the active support of landowners and the local community.
