There seem to be a lot of canal bridge numbers in the ref tag around
Cheshire, but not so many elsewhere. I've replaced them when I've spotted

I've long used bridge_ref for canal bridges, in the same vein as lock_ref
and lock_name. The only place that doesn't work easily is on a
railway-over-canal bridge, but you can namespace those: railway:bridge_ref,
