Drove road bridge was a stone arch road bridge, built between 1803 and 1804 for the Canal Company. This bridge carried the turnpike road to Cricklade. Adjacent to the Swindon Wharf and the canal managers villa. The towpath changed banks here, being on the north bank west and the south bank east of the bridge. This bridge was demolished between 1921 to 1922, with culverts because the canal was still watered on either side at this time. The Canal thought to have been filled in between 1922 and 1924.
