Cowley Double Road Bridge near Gnosall, Staffordshire
Bridge No 31.

This most unusual bridge needs to be viewed from above, so do please look at a satellite image of the Shropshire Union Canal here. The bridge is an accommodation bridge for Lower Cowley Farm (off to the left) to gain access to fields off to the right. It is wide enough to have two wide farm tracks with a wall separating them, enabling tractors and equipment to pass in both directions. I wonder how the canal company were persuaded to do that. A public footpath across fields also uses the bridge.
