Grand Western Canal - aqueduct over River Tone
Grand Western Canal - aqueduct over River Tone
The photographer is standing on the towpath as it crosses the bridge over the River Tone. The river is visible on the left.

On the right is the disused aqueduct, part of the old Grand Western Canal. The aqueduct is just wide enough to contain the narrow tub-boats used on the 13.5 mile section of the canal from Taunton to Lowdwells. This section of the canal closed in 1867 after being in operation for nearly 30 years.

The narrow canal aqueduct can be seen from a different angle in the following linked photos.
