SP3591 : Coventry Canal: Bridge Number 20A: Catgallow's Bridge

near to Nuneaton, Warwickshire, Great Britain

Coventry Canal: Bridge Number 20A: Catgallow's Bridge
Coventry Canal: Bridge Number 20A: Catgallow's Bridge
From old large scale Ordnance Survey maps there was a canal crossing here called Catgallow's Bridge as early as 1889, when the surrounding land was just fields, and long before the houses on the east side and the allotments on the west side came. If this bridge did not exist people wishing to cross the canal would have to make lengthy detours as the next crossing to the north-west is SP3591 : Coventry Canal: Bridge Number 21: Wash Lane Bridge some 700 metres away, and the next crossing to the south-east is Boot Bridge some 400 metres away. The photographer has no firm evidence that this is Bridge Number 20A, only that it falls between Bridge Numbers 20 and 21!
