Cotswold Canals in Pictures

Site of Thames Head Pumping Station

The pumping station buildings have long since been demolished and the site is now occupied by a private residence. In addition, the canal is infilled here.

The driveway to the house now occupies the original canal bed from the site of Thames Head Bridge.
