User-Submitted Notes

The Vignoles bridge was constructed in 1835 in Tipton to a design by Charles Vignoles. Originally built to span the Coventry to Oxford canal it was moved to its present site, to the West of Coventry city centre, in 1969.
Thomas Telford used this design of bridge extensively in the canal network. Constructed of cast iron it was both lightweight and with a long single span proved ideal for bridging canals.
