03-DEC-02 gents Canal and Hertford Union Canal
Bridge at the junction of the Regent's Canal and the Hertford Union Canal. 1830. Cast iron span comprising seven arched, moulded beams with latticed deck plates between. Two tie-rods run through the span, which rests on brick abutments. The three upper railings have been replaced and the adjoining walls show signs of reconstruction also: that to the north-west, however, retains its heavy granite coping.
HISTORY: this bridge was constructed at the junction of the Regent's Canal (opened 1820) and the Hertford Union Canal (opened 1830). It carried the tow path for the former along the southern side while the wider carriageway to the north served a commercial yard known as Victoria Wharf. The bridge is of interest for its cast iron construction, and for forming a significant feature at this Late Georgian canal junction.
