Tyrley Wharf

11/161 Bridge No.60


Canal bridge. C.1830. Thomas Telford and Alexander Easton, engineers.
Coursed sandstone with ashlar dressings. Wide elliptical hump-backed
arch with voussoirs; coped parapet and string course. Cast iron posts
on towpath side with grooves for holding ropes, formerly used on narrow
boats. This stretch of canal formerly formed part of the Birmingham
and Liverpool Junction Canal (Act passed 1826, opened 1835), which was
absorbed by the Ellesmere and Chester Canal in 1845 and eventually
became part of the Shropshire Union in 1846. The bridge, with its
painted voussoirs and string course, forms a picturesque group with
the first (southernmost) of Tyrley Locks (not included) and the buildings
on Tyrley Wharf (q.v.). V.C.H. II, (1967), p.295; Charles Hadfield,
The Canals of the West Midlands, (1966), Pp.183-9.
