Ashby Canal, Bridge 25, by Stoke Golding Wharf. The building (to the W of the towpath, immediately to the N of the bridge) which carried the FB is no longer in existence. Note that the 2GL Abstract is in error here - "small bridge" should have read "small building"!

Visited on 8th January 2005 by RHW. Condition: Probably destroyed.
probably refers to bridge over entrance to marina - now Ashby Canal Centre and new bridge. No FB there nor on bridges 25 & 26 to north.
