The Upper Mills Bridge Project
An appeal for donations towards restoration
The Upper Mills Bridge project is organised by the Cotswold Canals Trust and Stroud District Council as part of the Phase 1A Heritage Lottery Funded restoration of 6 miles of the Stroudwater Navigation and the Thames & Severn Canal.
The Phase 1a section runs from just east of Stonehouse to Brimscombe Port, a length of about 6 miles. Work on this £25m project has started, with completion due in 3-4 years.
The Trust has undertaken to appeal for further funds to facilitate the early reconstruction of Upper Mills Bridge.

The History of Upper Mills Bridge
Upper Mills Bridge was originally constructed in about 1778 as a timber construction accommodation swing bridge. It provided access to Upper Mills which derived its power from the Rover Frome in the valley below. The original timber bridge was probably replaced several times before the installation of a steel swing bridge in the 1920s. That bridge was built by Daniels of Stroud.
Work Commenced 27.09.10 – Target for Completion January 2011
