Cotswold Canals in Pictures

Pike Bridge, Eastington

This bridge was constructed for the Cotswold Canals Trust, and was officially opened on the 9th September 2005.

Walkers

For those heading towards Saul Junction from the Stonehouse/Stroud direction, this is where a required diversion away from the canals starts. Follow the Thames and Severn Way footpath along the southern bank of the River Frome to re-join the canal at the A38.

Once the Cotswold Canals Connected restoration programme has been completed in late 2024, this diversion will no longer be required.
