Canal at Plant's Bridge near Hazelhurst Junction, Staffordshire
Plant's Bridge is No 34 across the Caldon Canal. It is an accommodation bridge which also carries a public footpath which passes through 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.
