Gloucester and Sharpness Canal Two Mile Bend
Gloucester and Sharpness Canal Two Mile Bend
The canal runs parallel to the Bristol Road out of Gloucester in this square before executing a sharp "S" bend to the left of the photographer. The excavations visible on the other side of the canal are to straighten out this sharp bend, LinkExternal link unfortunately not led by the needs of the sea going ships which have used this canal, but instead to gain the necessary clearances to build a new western road bypass for Gloucester!
