Milford Bridge on the Staffordshire and Worcestershire Canal
Milford Bridge on the Staffordshire and Worcestershire Canal
This is Bridge No 105. The numbering starts at Stourport on Severn, and ends at Great Haywood with Bridge No 109. It is also a turnover, or roving bridge.

The towpath crosses from the left side of the canal to the right, facing the bridge as shown. Turnover or roving bridges such as this allowed the towing horse to cross the canal without the tow line getting caught up in the bridge.
