Roy's Bridge north-east of Willoughby in Warwickshire
Roy's Bridge is No 87 across the Oxford Canal. It is an accommodation bridge with no public rights of way across it or in 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.
