Cotswold Canals in Pictures

Stanton's Bridge

This is a standard canal company pattern brick-built accommodation bridge. The bricks are handmade and of a dark red colour, laid to a fairly irregular English bond. Although the bridge has been restored, and the parapets have been partly rebuilt, it is substantial in original condition.
