Oil Pipeline crossing
Oil Pipeline crossing
This Oil Pipeline from Avonmouth to the Midlands was constructed in 1941 to facilitate the transfer of oil from the docks and refineries to fuel distribution depots during WWII. It is still in use today. It crosses the Stroudwater Canal just above the waterline so relocation will be required before navigation can be restored.
