Marple Bridge

Marple Bridge

While Sanity was building, we made regular visits to the yard to discuss progress. After one such, I drove on to Marple and took this shot of a classic Macclesfield Canal turnover bridge, or snake bridge as they call them on this canal. The bridge allows a horse towing a boat to cross the canal without casting off the towline.
