Braunston Lock Bridge in Northamptonshire
Braunston Lock Bridge is No 3 across the Grand Union Canal (Grand Junction Canal - Main Line) and is an accommodation bridge with no public right of way on it or into adjacent fields. Beyond it is Braunston Lock No 2.
The Braunston flight of six wide locks provides a rise of 108 metres (35ft 6in).
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.
