Barton Swing Aqueduct - Towpath

Following my earlier post, and the photograph from Wonderful Britain magazine showing horses on the elevated towpath of the swing bridge, I decided to look back at the pictures I took when we crossed the bridge (twice) back in 2009.

On several photos I could clearly see evidence of  riveted brackets that supported the towpath structure. On the labelled photo above you can see where the remains of one bracket are located. It is likely, looking at the photo, that the Wonderful Britain photograph was taken from the control tower seen in the photograph that lies between the road and canal swing bridges.
