The un-numbered distant bridge is Dunstall Farm Bridge.

The Coventry Canal was started in 1768, and reached Atherstone by 1771, but lack of money meant that although it was planned to end at Fradley Junction, it had still only reached Fazeley by 1790. In the meantime, the Birmingham and Fazeley Canal had been built and used the Coventry Canal's original planned line to Whittington Brook, including the section shown in this and nearby pictures.

A further section beyond that (to Fradley) was built by another company, then subsequently purchased by the Coventry company. Consequently this five and a half mile section of the Birmingham and Fazeley Canal (with un-numbered bridges) splits the Coventry Canal (with numbered bridges). Confused?
