Canal makers stream through

'Double Culvert Bridge' (number 40)

The makers of the Shropshire Union Canal believed in going the straight line - so they cut their way through hills, banks, water-courses and the like, rarely veering. 
They were of so fixed a mind to go headlong through natural features that 'Double Culvert Bridge' (number 40) near Norbury, as well as having the canal underneath it, even has to carry the original natural stream of the locality through and along it.
