Canal and pasture near Barby in Northamptonshire
Canal and pasture near Barby in Northamptonshire
This is the Oxford Canal, looking north towards Rugby, and towards Borstal Bridge, No 81. A long established public footpath across fields from Barby (since diverted away from Onley Fields Farm) crosses this accommodation bridge.

The likely original name was Onley Fields Bridge when the canal was built here in the 1780s. The nearby prison opened as a Borstal in 1968, and became a Young Offenders Institution in 1976.
