Casthorpe Bridge on the Grantham Canal, near Denton
Casthorpe Bridge on the Grantham Canal, near Denton
Bridge 63 on the Denton to Sedgebrook road. A total of 46 of the 69 bridges along the Grantham Canal were reduced and culverted in the 1950s as part of a major road improvement programme across the Vale of Belvoir and this is a major obstacle to bringing the canal back into navigation. Raising the bridges to a suitable height is not just a simple task of rebuilding the old hump-back bridges. A further complication is the requirement to conform to road safety laws: a clear line of sight at bridges is needed to prevent accidents. This bridge shows a successful, if rather unattractive, rebuilding.
