Lower Peak Forest Canal

Accommodation Bridges

Introduction
Accommodation Bridges were built over canals to preserve ancient rights of way and typically they were provided for the convenience of farmers who required access to their fields that lay on the opposite side of new canals.

The bridges shown here are, with one exception, stone built, and those that survive are now recognised as having special architectural and/or historic interest.
