Grand Union Canal: Bridge Number 76A
Grand Union Canal: Bridge Number 76A
Bridge Number 76A was built by the London & North Western Railway in 1867 on the route of their branch line from Wolverton to Newport Pagnell. The railway was a victim of Dr Beeching and closed to passenger traffic in 1964 and to goods trains in 1967 after 100 years of service. Old Ordnance Survey maps show that there was a railway milepost at the right end of the bridge here inscribed Newport Pagnell 2.

The bridge has been retained to carry a footpath over the canal, and this now forms a section of the long distance Midshires Way.
