SU2263 : Burbage Wharf Bridge, Kennet and Avon Canal by Dr Neil Clifton
The first major road bridge over the Kennet and Avon for many miles, this bridge carries the A346 linking Andover with Marlborough.

SU2263 : 2009 : A346 crossing the Kennet & Avon Canal by Maurice Pullin
At Burbage Wharf Bridge, number 104. Taken from the adjoining railway bridge which is just as narrow and even more awkward.
The A346 is a major north/south link through Marlborough and Pewsey. A little surprising that these two narrow bridges have not yet been improved (or bypassed). Let us hope that when it is done the powers that be will do it sympathetically.
