Grand Union Canal: Bridge Number 96A
Grand Union Canal: Bridge Number 96A
Bridge Number 96A is an offline lift bridge on the towpath that when raised enables boats access to and from the small marina beyond. The basin is called Grenville Marina and the moorings are managed by the Canal and River Trust. Old Ordnance Survey maps show that there has been a basin here since at least Victorian times, serving Saracen's Wharf next to the old Saracen's Head public house. The current basin is not quite on the same alignment as, and considerably wider than, the original.
