Bridleway and bridge north of Tregaron, Ceredigion
Bridleway and bridge north of Tregaron, Ceredigion
This accommodation bridge was built to cross the former Manchester and Milford Railway (which went to neither place eventually).
Accommodation Bridges
When the canals (or railways) were built in the 18th and 19th centuries, they were often routed in such a way that farmers and other landowners had their land bisected, so bridges had to be provided to allow access to fields on both sides of the canal. These bridges are frequently referred to as accommodation bridges, and however solid and well constructed, often don't lead anywhere except from one field to another.
