An introduction to the settlements along the canal from Framilode on the River Severn to Wallbridge, Stroud.
From its entrance off the River Severn at Framilode, the canal ran across fields to Saul Junction.
The Canal closely follows the River Frome past Whitminster House, and to the east it is crossed by the Bristol Road.
The Canal climbs the hill to the north of Eastington village in a flight of five locks, passing the Canal Maintenance Yard.
The canal runs along a ledge on the side of the Frome valley, having once served the town's coal wharf and mills in the valley below.
The canal through Ryeford and Ebley once served two coal wharfs, four woollen cloth mills and several other business premises.
The canal through Dudbridge and Wallbridge once served important wharfs, woollen cloth mills and other business premises.
