ST7265 : River  Avon  on the Western fringes of Bath by Martyn Pattison
This section of the river is just to the west of Bath, and flows down to Bristol. Once it would have carried heavy industrial traffic to Bristol, now it really only carries leisure craft.

Newbridge Road Bridge

ST7165 : New Bridge over the River Avon by Philip Halling
A narrow boat passes under New Bridge. The bridge replaced a ford at this point 1734, though the bridge was later widened and altered in the 1820s. The original construction of the bridge was part of a wider scheme to make the river navigable. The circular hole in the bridge, along with smaller arches each side help to relieve pressure from water during times of flood.

Rowers hereabouts overtake narrowboats with great gusto. Behind across the floodplain can be seen the trees and shrubs lining the river as it winds towards the next railway bridge, and lining the Bristol & Bath route. Perched on the hill is Newton St Loe ST7064
