New Railway Bridge over the canal at The Ocean, Stonehouse

At our recent AGM, Jim White told members that the towpath in the vicinity of The Ocean at Stonehouse would be closed for the replacement of the Railway bridge over the canal by The Ocean. The new bridge components are being precast in sections in an adjacent field in the next few months and will be lifted into place and assembled in situ during three days in early May, after removing the old bridge and embankment.

Stonehouse Court Hotel is apparently heavily booked for the weekend by railway / canal fans to witness the event!
