Basin Bridge, Birmingham: close-up of the bridge spanning the entrance to the Birmingham and Fazeley Canal

Brindley, James (1716-1772)
NOTES: The basin used to link the Worcester & Birmingham Canal to the Birmingham Canal Main Line. It was also known either as the Farmer's Bridge Junction or Old Turn Junction. The arch that can be seen in the distance, with the buildings and church above, is the bridge/tunnel leading into Gas Street Basin and the Worcester Bar. The Worcester Ba (not visible in the photograph)r, built in 1792, separated the two canals for 30 years so that the Birmingham Canal Navigations company didn't lose water to the Worcester & Birmingham canal. This inconvenience was resolved by the building of a lock in 1815.

'Iron Trunk' aqueduct on the Grand Union Canal crossing the Great Ouse at Cosgrove, Northamptonshire

Bevan, Benjamin (fl.1804-1823)
NOTES: The Grand Union Canal, linking London with the industrial Midlands, was built for The Canal Company between 1793 and 1805. William Jessop was the chief engineer for The Canal Company and decided to cross the valley with an aqueduct thus avoiding the need to build a number of expensive locks. The acqueduct was designed by Benjamin Bevan of Leighton Buzzard, another engineer with the company, and it was manufactured by Reynolds and Company at their Ketley Iron Works in the West Midlands.
