Bridge work

Not the dental sort, the canal sort. And even more expensive. This precarious looking bridge was one of the worst but we passed a number of only slightly less dodgy looking bridges on the Oxford Canal. Over the course of the summer we've passed many others.
They give just a small insight into the massive financial headache that the waterways are. Each of these bridges is almost certainly a listed structure which means time consuming bureaucracy and expensive repairwork. The bridge, by the way, goes nowhere!
