Grand Union Canal: Bridge Number 121
Bridge Number 121 is a double-arched bridge at Horton Lock, so built to accommodate the entries to, and exits from, the planned twin locks. It is a Grade II Listed Structure, one of four at the lock site. The English Heritage website describes it thus:- "Circa 1839. Red and brown brick with band course and segmental brick coping to parapet. Brick end piers. 2 depressed arches, that to W. originally intended to cross narrow duplicate lock. N. parapet continued to E. and stepped down between square piers with pyramidal coping stones."

It is interesting to read that EH write that it was built around 1839, some 40 years after the canal was opened.
