Grand Union Canal: Bridge Number 80A
Grand Union Canal: Bridge Number 80A
Bridge Number 80A is a footbridge linking the Downhead Park and Willen Park areas of Milton Keynes.

Incidentally there is no Bridge Number 80 any more. This number was originally allocated to a long demolished (prior to Milton Keynes being built) swing bridge just to the north of where the entrance to the Pennyland Boat Basin is today. Curiously its location was between where SP8641 : Grand Union Canal: Bridge Number 79C and SP8641 : Grand Union Canal: Bridge Number 79D are today. If precedent elsewhere on the Grand Union Canal had been followed the latter should have been numbered Bridge Number 80.
