Cotswold Canals in Pictures

Skew Bridge (Railway), Coates

This bridge carries the Swindon-Gloucester branch of the Great Western Railway over the canal.

Before the Ocean Railway Bridge was re-built in 2020-21 this bridge was the only intact 'live' railway bridge on the Cotswold Canals.

Water in the canal at this point is relatively rare - a wet winter is needed!
