Not far from the Guardlock, the canal passed under a wooden bridge. Cut stone abutments on each bank supported the simple wooden truss structure. This was the first of four bridges that crossed the canal on it two mile path beside the river. The ford here remained an important point to cross the river and without these bridges the canal would have proven an impediment to this traditional route.
