Ocean Jubilee Bridge Build in Pictures

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 continued on site until May 2022.

The bridge was officially opened on 23 May 2022 and named 'Ocean Jubilee Bridge'.
