SU1160 : Woodborough Fields Bridge, Kennet and Avon Canal by Dr Neil Clifton
Seen here from the east. Clearly, secret plans had been discovered showing that Hitler intended to cross the Kennet and Avon with tanks here, so precautions against this were taken. Otherwise the only crossing traffic is horses, cycles and pedestrians on the bridleway.

Stanton Bridge No.125:

1977
SU0961 : Stanton Bridge, Kennet and Avon Canal by Dr Neil Clifton
Stanton Bridge carries a minor metalled road, so why the 'tank trap' visible on the right is there is a mystery, as clearly it cannot obstruct the passage of the bridge.

SU0962 : England's Bridge - No.126 - K&A Canal Stanton St.Bernard 2004 by Maurice Pullin
The "bridge 'oles" on this canal as originally designed by John Rennie are a little eccentric, the towpath side being slightly flattened.
Rennie was also the engineer of the Lancaster Canal so it is not surprising that the bridges there have a similar appearance.
