Brassworks Bridge near Little Stoke, Staffordshire
This is Bridge No 91 across the Trent and Mersey Canal, south-east of Stone.

The bridge started off as an accommodation bridge, but now it allows a route from the towpath to and from the recent housing at Little Stoke. Before that there were only pastures by the River Trent (to the right) and Lichfield Road (the old A51, now B5027) on the left.
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.
