Llangollen Canal west of Wrenbury in Cheshire
Llangollen Canal west of Wrenbury in Cheshire
Looking north-west through the arch of Thomason's Bridge, No 22 across the Llangollen Canal south-west of Tetchill. It is an accommodation bridge with no public access into adjacent fields.
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.
