SK5739SE LONDON ROAD 646-1/24/331 (East side) Turnover bridge on Nottingham Canal

GV II

Turnover bridge carrying the access road to the London Road Railway station over the Nottingham Canal. 1792-96. By William Jessop and James Green for the Nottingham Canal Co. Probably altered 1857 when the station was built. Rockfaced stone with ashlar dressings and cast-iron balustrade. Single elliptical arch with impost band. Straight approach ramp from towpath on west side, curving ramp to east, both with half-round ashlar coping to the retaining walls. This type of bridge allows horses drawing boats to cross from one towpath to another without disconnecting the towrope. The Nottingham Canal passed into the control of the Great Northern Railway in 1861. (Canals of the British Isles: Hadfield C: Canals of the East Midlands: Newton Abbot: 1966-: 54-58 & 194-196).
