I agree. I suspect the bridge is a replacement since the OS found the FB in 1963. Note the FB was on the opposite side of the canal to the towpath.

Visited on 8th November 2004 by RHW. Condition: Probably destroyed.
No sign of FB, probably lost either to 1930s widening or later repairs (arch has been spray-concreted)
