Canal being diverted, Two Mile Bend
Canal being diverted, Two Mile Bend
The Two Mile Bend (from Gloucester Docks) is being straightened. A new moving bridge is being built to carry a new Gloucester bypass. Abutment behind the lamp post spoiling the view. There was no other choice of view through chink in fencing! This is said to be the largest canal diversion this century (so far)!
