TQ2884SE CAMDEN HIGH STREET 798-1/65/153 Roving bridge over Grand Union Canal 22/07/77 west of Hampstead Road Lock (Formerly Listed as: REGENT'S CANAL Roving Bridge (West of Hampstead Road Lock))

GV II

Roving bridge. Early/mid C19, restored late C20. Cast-iron single span skew cross-over bridge originally with wrought-iron tension stays but now restored with steel tension cables; decking renewed. Approached on both sides by steep ramps with granite setts and stone parapets with many rope markings. The stone and metal approaches to the bridge are scarred by the tow ropes of barges drawn out of the lock and under the bridge which takes the towpath back onto the northern side of the canal. HISTORICAL NOTE: going down hill the horses could get back onto the towpath by crossing Hampstead Road Bridge (qv) and entering by the ramp west of the bridge opposite the lock-keeper's cottage, now the Regents Canal Information Centre (qv).
