Occupation Bridge, Whitminster
A narrow brick-built accommodation bridge. The bricks are handmade and of a dark red colour, laid to a fairly irregular bond. The bridge has an elliptical arch springing from wedge-shaped stone springers and protected by a simple projecting brick dripmould. The wing walls are built with an inward �batter� and curve outwards from the arch to end in pilaster terminals. The parapet brickwork is contiguous with that of the wing walls and spandrels rather than being of a separate construction. The parapet is level over the arch and then slopes gently down in a straight line on either side to the ends of the wing walls; it is topped by a plain stone coping. There has been some repair to the wing walls and parapet by the Cotswolds Canals Trust but the bridge is largely intact.
