SP7256 : Grand Union Canal (Northampton Arm): Drawbridge Number 6

taken 9 years ago, near to Rothersthorpe, Northamptonshire, Great Britain

Grand Union Canal (Northampton Arm): Drawbridge Number 6
Grand Union Canal (Northampton Arm): Drawbridge Number 6
At the time the photograph was taken the drawbridge was out of action and being refurbished. It is immediately downstream of Lock Number 10 in the Rothersthorpe flight and does actually formally carry a public footpath over the canal. This means that there is a long diversion in place for those unable to cross the canal by walking across the top of the lock gates. Curiously, unlike the nearby and near identical Drawbridge Numbers 5 and 7, it does not merit formal Listed Structure status.
