Lamberts Lane Bridge in Congleton, Cheshire
Bridge No 77 across the Macclesfield Canal is a turnover (or roving or snake) bridge which carries the towpath to the other side of the canal. Horses did not need to be unhitched from the boats when using these cunningly designed (and attractive) bridges.
