Deepmore Bridge south of Calf Heath, Staffordshire
Deepmore Bridge is No 75 over the Staffordshire and Worcestershire Canal. It is a farmer's service bridge, and carries a public footpath from Deepmore Farm onto the towpath.
Accommodation Bridges
When the canals (or railways) were built in the 18th and 19th centuries, they were often routed in such a way that farmers and other landowners had their land bisected, so bridges had to be provided to allow access to fields on both sides of the canal. These bridges are frequently referred to as accommodation bridges, and however solid and well constructed, often don't lead anywhere except from one field to another.
Staffordshire and Worcestershire Canal
The Staffordshire and Worcestershire Canal was opened in 1772, engineered by James Brindley. It cost a little over 100,000 at the time. It links the River Severn at Stourport to the Trent and Mersey Canal at Great Haywood Junction in Staffordshire. There are 43 locks (45 if you don't fancy the deep wide locks at Stourport) and the canal is 46 miles in length.
