Crossings related to the M5

This is the most used, widest and newest crossing of the River Brue, although it isn't difficult to see why! Heading across it on the Motorway you would also be forgiven for missing it, as the site is dominated by the Woodbury Bros & Haines / Caxton Furniture Factory and surrounding Industrial Estate. Also, unlike the River Huntspill 1.5 miles further south, the Brue here is a narrow and tree lined channel.
