The Pike Bridge is located near the western end of the Cotswold Canals. It carried the main road into the village of Eastington.

The bridge (or lack of it) forms the next major obstruction to overcome to enable the extension of the Cotswold Canals Trust restored length westwards. The Heritage Lottery Funded Phase 1A section runs from Stonehouse about 1 mile east of Pike Bridge to Brimscombe Port, a length of about 6 miles. Work on this 20m project is due to be complete by the end of 2015. Access to the rest of the national waterway network depends on the restoration of the 4 mile Phase 1B section between Eastington and the Gloucester & Sharpness Canal at Saul - Pike Bridge was a key project within this length.  The Cotswold Canals Trust is the lead organisation for Phase 1B.
