Black Boy Bridge is No 69 across the Grand Union Canal, and is an accommodation bridge which also allows access to moorings on the west bank of the canal.
Accommodation Bridges

When the canals (or railways) were built in the 18th and 19th centuries, they were often routed in such a way that farmers and other landowners had their land bisected, so bridges had to be provided to allow access to fields on both sides of the canal. These bridges are frequently referred to as accommodation bridges, and however solid and well constructed, often don't lead anywhere except from one field to another.
