Bridge 88A
Bridge 88A
Almost an accommodation bridge, in that this doesn't appear to carry a classified public road, but connects industrial works on the NW side of the canal with the road network to the SE.
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.
