Viewed from the railway station, the Herefordshire & Gloucestershire Canal canal once ended at a wharf in the middle of this photo. Restoration plans will terminate the canal at a new wharf to the right of this photo, a little short of its original end.
The new route passes under Farriers Way Bridge and curves to the right to rejoin the original alignment of the Herefordshire & Gloucestershire Canal. The bridge han an example of the signs along the route of the canal to generate local interest.
The grassed area along the edge of the retail park next to Newtown Road marks the new route for the restored Herefordshire & Gloucestershire Canal. A footbridge is already in place where the route curves to the left around the end of the car park.
The proposed new alignment for the Herefordshire & Gloucestershire Canal comes towards the camera near the centre of the picture. The old route ran diagonally across the centre of the picture, from top left to bottom right.
A very slight hump in the road, next to the trees, marks the location of a former bridge crossing the HerefordshiRe & Gloucestershire Canal. There’s nothing to see of the route in either direction as modern buildings cover the line. The proposed new route passes left to right behind the white buildings.
