Barn Bridge north-west of Gnosall Heath, Staffordshire
Bridge No 37 across the Shropshire Union Canal is an accommodation bridge carrying a little used farm track. A public footpath and bridleway are also routed over the bridge. It is also referred to as Machins Barn Bridge.
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.
