THE part of the Thames and Severn Canal which is represented in the annexed engraving, passes beneath the road from Cirencester to Tetbury, and so on to Bath, and at a small distance from the first rising of the Thames, in the Parish of Cotes, in the County of Gloucester. The Steam Engine, which is a principal object in the picture, has been erected to throw water from springs below, to supply the Canal above. This Engine throws up three hogsheads at a stroke, and gives sixteen strokes in a minute. The Spire
in the distance, rises from the Church of Kemble, a pleasant village, in which is the seat of Charles Cox, Esquire.
