SP4935 : Oxford Canal: Coles Lift Bridge Number 183

taken 8 months ago, near to Kings Sutton, Northamptonshire, Great Britain

Oxford Canal: Coles Lift Bridge Number 183
Oxford Canal: Coles Lift Bridge Number 183
Like most, if not all, of the lift bridges on the Oxford Canal, this is a Grade II Listed Structure. Strangely the Ordnance Survey call this a swing bridge, which is an entirely different type of structure, on all the historic editions of their large scale mapping.

These bridges are always left in the open tilted state.

Confusingly Bridge Number 182, which is about 800 metres further north along the canal, is also called Coles Lift Bridge. Please see SP4935 : Oxford Canal: Coles Lift Bridge Number 182

The bridge beyond this one is the comparatively new M40 Motorway bridge, Number 182A.
