SO7030 : Gloucester and Hereford Canal

taken 13 years ago, near to Dymock, Gloucestershire, Great Britain

Gloucester and Hereford Canal
Gloucester and Hereford Canal
The Gloucester to Hereford canal was begun in 1793 and completed by 1845. Unfortunately it was never a commercial success and it closed in 1885. This is one of the few parts of the former canal which still has water in it. This section is just north of the Oxenhall tunnel where the M50 crosses the canal's route.
