We love and care for your canals and rivers, because everyone deserves a place to escape.

This bridge bears the name Joseph Clayton 1876, commemorating his widening of the bridge in that year. Look for the deep grooves worn in the walls of the bridge by the towlines of horse boats which were hauled under the bridge.
