Preston Brook Tunnel Entrance
Canal tunnel linking south end of the Bridgewater Canal with the Trent
and Mersey Canal Circa 1777. Of red brick with stone dressing to
tunnel ends. The tunnel is without tow path therefore bridges, linked

The bridge at the south end of the tunnel is of blue bricks with stone
arch ring, projecting carriage arch, parapet abutments and coping;
these features have been lost at the north end, which has been rebuilt
in red facing bricks.
