Bridge No 56 near Tardebigge, Worcestershire
This is on the Worcester and Birmingham Canal, seen with telephoto assistance from Tardebigge Top Lock. The bridge, which was a farmer's accommodation bridge, is well grassed over, and judging from current aerial images is not in use, apart from (maybe) as a public footpath across fields.

The Worcester and Birmingham Canal was constructed in stages between 1791 and 1815. Grain, timber and agricultural produce were carried to the Midlands. Industrial goods and coal were carried down towards Worcester, often for onward transport to Bristol. Pairs of donkeys were often used in preference to horses, maybe because they could easily be put onto the boats which had to be legged through the tunnels such as the one north-east of here at Tardebigge.
