The building in this view now occupies the site of the wharf agent's house, which was demolished in 1975. There is no longer any evidence of the canal in the vicinity.

Part of the infilled canal basin now lies under Sheep Street (photo middle distance). This section of road was called Querns Hill and was re-aligned and renamed when the Cirencester ring road was constructed in the mid 1970s.

There are no plans to restore the Cirencester Arm.
