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.
