Cotswold Canals in Pictures

Dr Newtons Way Bridge

Dr Newtons Way bridge was built in the 1980s and forms part of the Stroud bypass. The road uses a section of the orginal the canal bed and in 2012 a diversionary route was created as part of the Phase 1a restoration programme, which reinstated the lost section of canal.

Walkers

The walker needs to cross the canal here using the road bridge as the towpath changes from one side of the canal to the other at this point.
