This bridge has also been known as Brush Works Bridge.
Upper Mills Bridge was a swing bridge when the canal was operational. But in the late 1960s the canal company gave permission for the bridge to be replaced with a wider fixed steel and reinforced concrete structure. This was to give better access to the adjacent Upper Mills industrial site.
In 2010 worked started to construct the new high-level fixed bridge seen today.
Note: there is a winding hole adjacent to the bridge.
