BRAUNSTON GRAND UNION CANAL
4/81, 18/81 Bridges Nos.93 and 94
Triple bridge. c.1830. Brick central bridge on triangular island at canal
junction, links with cast iron bridges across canal on either side. The iron
bridges have moulded elliptical arches and iron trellis parapets. The arches are
stamped on both sides. "Horseley Ironworks" and have iron plaques with numbers
93 and 94. Brick flanking walls curving down to tow path on either side. The
cast iron bridges are of similar design as a bridge at Braunston Wharf (q.v.).
The Oxford Canal formerly joined the Grand Union Canal at Braunston Wharf. In
1829-84 it was shortened and straightened and the present junction formed.
