Grand Union Canal south-east of Newton Harcourt, Leicestershire
This is the canal approaching High Bridge (No 79) from the south-east. The bridge is an accommodation bridge carrying no public right of way. The woodland on the left is Manor House Spinney.
Accommodation Bridges
When the canals (or railways) were built in the 18th and 19th centuries, they were often routed in such a way that farmers and other landowners had their land bisected, so bridges had to be provided to allow access to fields on both sides of the canal. These bridges are frequently referred to as accommodation bridges, and however solid and well constructed, often don't lead anywhere except from one field to another.
