"Annie's Bridge" (canal swing bridge) in Vines Park
This is one of the swing bridges in Vines Park. It can be swung aside to allow boats to pass along the Droitwich Barge Canal, which it crosses. Rather oddly, there are gates at both ends, which appeared to be locked, so quite why the bridge is needed isn't clear. There are two others very close by.

In the background can be seen part of the large Waitrose supermarket.
