Grand Union Canal: Site of former Bridge Number 70
Grand Union Canal: Site of former Bridge Number 70
This distinctive narrowing of the canal shows the site of the former Bridge Number 70. This was originally a farmers' accommodation bridge allowing access between fields on either side of the canal, but probably became surplus to requirements as this area of Wolverton became increasingly industrialized with the large railway carriage works to the south. It appears on the large scale Ordnance Survey map of 1881 but is not shown on the edition of 1900.
