Grand Union Canal: The Iron Trunk Aqueduct (1)
The Iron Trunk Aqueduct was opened in 1811 and was the fourth attempt by the then Grand Junction Canal to cross the River Great Ouse, which is in the foreground here. It is the oldest broad canal iron trough aqueduct and is a Scheduled Ancient Monument. The fabric of the aqueduct was refurbished in time for its 200th anniversary in 2011. During the works the towpath across the aqueduct was closed and a temporary footbridge over the river was erected on this side. That footbridge has since been demolished but is shown on some Ordnance Survey maps and some contemporary satellite imagery. A couple of Sunday morning anglers complete the picture.

This is the east side of the aqueduct. Please see SP8041 : Grand Union Canal: The Iron Trunk Aqueduct (2) for a view of the west side.
