Coombe Hill Canal
Coombe Hill Canal
The Coombe Hill Canal is two miles long and was used for ferrying coal from the River Severn to Coombe Hill, from where the coal was taken by road to Cheltenham. The canal closed in 1876. Today, the canal is a nature reserve. Just before taking this picture I saw a Kingfisher.
