Skew Bridge, Monkhide
Built by Stephen Ballard in 1843 to take a minor no through road over the Hereford to Gloucester Canal. Rather than simply build it at right angles to the canal he went to all the trouble with stability etc in building the most skew canal bridge in Britain. Why? Because he could.
