Wrenbury Church Lift Bridge in Cheshire
Wrenbury Church Lift Bridge is No 19 across the Llangollen canal. It is an accommodation bridge, but access is available into fields both sides because a public footpath crosses them.
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.
