Quarry Bridge near Marston Jabbett, Warwickshire
Quarry Bridge near Marston Jabbett, Warwickshire
On the Ashby Canal, approaching Quarry Bridge (No 2). The farmer's bridge also allowed traffic from the former Perch Hill Quarry (now flooded) access to Marston Lane.

This 22 mile lock free canal originally went as far north as Conkers (near Moira), and never reached Ashby-de-la-Zouch. Coal was carried on a regular commercial basis until the 1960s. At present the canal stops at Snarestone, though the eight mile stretch to Moira is being (or has been) restored.
