Site: Packington Bridge (1 memorial)

N1, Shepherdess Walk, Packington Bridge

Viewed from the tow path this bridge is modern in design but the plaque was almost certainly erected to mark its opening in the 19th century. Rather oddly the new bridge seems to be narrower than the original. Any information welcome.
