Bridge No 84 across the Macclesfield Canal is a little used grassed over accommodation bridge carrying no public right of way. Maybe the couple and their dog are doing the Cheshire Ring Canal Walk, which uses the towpath here.

If you like square images, try this (but the dog is hiding):

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.
