SJ3966 : Bridge over the Shropshire Union Canal

taken 10 years ago, near to Chester, Cheshire, Great Britain

Bridge over the Shropshire Union Canal
Bridge over the Shropshire Union Canal
This narrow bridge is just wide enough for a man and a horse to cross the canal. The circular brick structure at the other side of the canal allows the boat horse to descend to the tow path without detaching the tow rope. Tower Wharf is to the right. The black plaque attached to the brick wall on the other side of the canal commemorates LTC Rolt and his contribution to the canals - see SJ3966 : Plaque commemorating LTC Rolt.
