Grand Union Canal – Cosgrove, Milton Keynes

Here are a few shots taken during a stroll along the Grand Union Canal at Cosgrove, Milton Keynes on a pleasant and unusually warm day.   In amongst the not so unusual narrowboats and wildlife was Bridge 65 which is one of only two ornamental bridges that grace the Canal.  The gothic style bridge which was built in 1800 is  not surprisingly a grade II listed monument.  The Cosgrove Aqueduct which was opened in 1811 (after 3 failed attempts)  is the oldest broad canal iron trough aqueduct and was built to cross the River Great Ouse.
