History

Capels Viaduct is 253 yards long. It originally carried the railway over a valley, canal, river, millpond and mill with skew arches for the canal, river and mill stream. The canal was filled in during the construction of the A419 Stroud Bypass (Dr. Newton's Way) and that road now passes through the arch originally used by the canal.
