This is the western end of the restored Phase 1A section of Stroudwater Navigation. It also marks the eastern end of the Phase 1B restoration section, where work is due to commence in 2021.
'The Ocean' is a designated winding hole (ie. a place to turn boats around).
This section between Ocean (swing) Bridge and the soon to be reinstaed Ocean Railway Bridge will require dredging to return it to a navigable state.
