River Nene Navigation: A45 road bridge
River Nene Navigation: A45 road bridge
This is the view from the footbridge at the Upper Wellingborough Lock. Prior to the construction of the A45 dual carriageway, old large scale Ordnance Survey maps show that the Navigation ran in a straight line from here direct to SP9066 : River Nene: Wellingborough Bridge, so a fairly major diversion of its route was necessary to get it to go under the new road more or less perpendicularly, rather than at a narrow angle.
