Canal bridges again

A few of the old bridges are in a pretty poor state...

... but some have been rebuilt very sensitively - this one has a new concrete arch but still retains the classic style.

Talking about classic style, how about bridge 103 on the Grand Union canal. Rather grander than the normal accommodation bridge: perhaps the landowner wanted something special. The web site CanalPlan just says ‘Bridge 103 is a minor waterways feature on the Grand Union Canal’ but gives no more information. Some other references say it was know as the ‘New Bridge’
