Clark's Bridge Grantham Canal

Clark's Bridge on the Grantham Canal running from the market town of Grantham to the River Trent is a fine example of late eighteenth century canal architecture.

Clark's Bridge is a Grade II listed structure and was built of handmade, red bricks, with restoration work carried out in 2006.

The bridge's number (32) is also hand painted and the latest restoration involved adding a bat box to encourage bats to breed, especially the rare Daubenton bat.

The Grantham Canal is no longer in use but is popular with anglers, hikers, canal towpath walkers and dog-walkers. Today we passed a pair of swans (a cob and pen) with their eight cygnets.
