Canal. Early C19, possibly by Robert Mylne, first principal
engineer to the Gloucester and Berkeley Canal Company. Rendered,
artificial slate roof, small brick ridge stack. Small cruciform
structure with shallow pediment to each face, presenting single
storey towards canal with 2 storeys to remaining sides. Main
front to canal with 2 fluted Doric columns widely spaced in antis,
beneath shallow pediment with plain frieze and cornice and without

canal route from Gloucester to Berkeley was carried out in 1793 by
Mylne. In 1813 the terminal point was changed to Sharpness and
the Canal opened in 1827.
