Cotswold Canals in Pictures

Site of Furzenleaze Bridge

Furzenleaze Bridge, also known as Level Bridge, has long since been demolished and the canal infilled which continues eastwards until after the site of Minety Road bridge, at Upper Siddington.

A short section (~300m) of the old canal towpath can be walked from just up the road from here across a field up to the site of Blue House Bridge.

The footpath then leaves the canal route and takes a right turn along an access road which rejoins the Ewen Road.

The track over the former bridge would probably have been in line with the gate.
