Grand Union Canal: Bridge Number 71A
Grand Union Canal: Bridge Number 71A
Off to the right is Bridge Number 71A which carries the West Coast Main Line over the canal. This is not however the original canal bridge on the railway between London and Birmingham. The historically important SP8141 : Grand Union Canal: Bridge Number 70A gets that accolade. This bridge was built when the London & North Western Railway realigned the route around the Wolverton carriage works in about 1882. The small tunnel to the left is a pedestrian subway under the railway.
