Grand Union Canal (Northampton Arm): Drawbridge Number 5
Grand Union Canal (Northampton Arm): Drawbridge Number 5
As with all the locks on the Rothersthorpe flight this drawbridge is a Grade II Listed Structure dating from the time that the canal was built around 1815. Its purpose as a farmers' access bridge across the canal has long since been redundant and it is now maintained permanently in an up position.

The vast swathes of SP7256 : Rothersthorpe: Miscanthus (Elephant Grass) crop are visible in the field beyond.
