About this image
Gamston Bridge over the Grantham Canal. The Canal was constructed in the 1790's and ran between Nottingham and Grantham. It finally closed to all traffic in 1929, unable to compete with the railways, and was officially abandoned in 1936. Most of the canal continued to have water in it, to supply farms with water for the fields, but some sections were filled in. The canal is currently undergoing restoration. The bridge seen here carried westbound traffic and another bridge carried eastbound before being demolished when improvements were made to the A52.
