The Iron Trunk Aqueduct, or Cosgrove Aqueduct as it is otherwise known, is located on the Grand Union Canal between Wolverton and Cosgrove. From the car park, it is a 10 to 15-minute stroll along the Canal towpath.
Cosgrove aqueduct is a navigable cast iron aqueduct that carries the Grand Union Canal over the River Great Ouse, on the borders between Buckinghamshire and Northamptonshire at the northwest margin of Milton Keynes. The present structure was built in 1811, to replace a previous brick structure that had failed. When the present structure was erected, it was known as the “Iron Trunk”. The structure has two cast iron trough spans, with a single central masonry pier. The abutments were constructed in masonry but have been refaced in brick during the twentieth century. The trough is 15 feet (4.6 m) wide, 6 ft 6 in (1.98 m) deep, with a total length of 101 feet (31 m). The canal surface is about 40 feet (12 m) above the surface of the river.
