Cotswold Canals in Pictures

Ocean Railway Bridge Re-build

The railway bridge at the 'The Ocean', Stonehouse was demolished by British Rail as a cost saving measure in the late 1960s.

Between December 25th and 31st, 2021 a new bridge was constructed by Network Rail as part of the Cotswold Canals Connected restoration scheme. Work will continue on site until March 2022.
