Canal bridge. Late C18, partly renewed. Wooden tilting bridge, with inclined
counterweight beams, is of considerable age but is probably not original. Brick
abutments, which splay outwards and diminish, have projecting limestone fender
blocks and retain some stone copings. Cast-iron plates on both sides are
inscribed "186". This tilting bridge, designed by James Brindley, is largely
found on the Oxford Canal.
