Description

TRING GRAND UNION CANAL
SP 91 SW
4/61 Bridge No. 134
- (High Bridge) at
Marshcroft Lane
- II
Canal bridge. 1793-7, by William Jessop chief engineer for Grand
Junction Canal Company. Brown brick with blue brick special copings. A
high-level turnover bridge at the middle of the Tring Canal Cutting
where the towpath changes from the W to the E sides, with long earth
ramps leading up to the roadway at the level of Marshcroft Lane.
Elliptical 3-ring arch over canal of dimensions of a normal bridge but
here dwarfed by the height and width of the battered brickwork faces
rising to a projecting brick band at roadway level with brick parapet
walls. Parapets curve outward at ends and follow beside the ramps a
short distance. Also known as Marshcroft Bridge. The Tring Canal Cutting
is 1½ miles long and over 30ft deep at maximum and came into service in
1797. (Faulkner(1972)39).
