Trent and Mersey Canal near Stone, Staffordshire
This is at Stonefield. Bridge No 96 was originally an accommodation bridge, and now carries a footpath extending Whitebridge Lane to housing and the B5027 Newcastle Road.
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.
