BRAUNSTON BRAUNSTON WHARF
Bridge. c.1830. Cast iron with moulded elliptical arch and cast iron trellis
parapet. The arch is inscribed on both sides "Horseley Ironworks". Brick
flanking walls with blue brick coping. The Grand Junction canal was authorised
by Act of Parliament in 1793. The Braunston section was complete by 1796. It
formerly met the Oxford Canal near this bridge at Braunston Wharf. In 1829-34
the course of the Oxford canal was altered to join the Grand Junction Canal
approx. 800 metres further west at Junction Wharf, Braunston, where there are
two iron bridges (q.v.) also made by Horseley Ironworks and of similar design to
this bridge at Braunston Wharf.
