SJ 68 NW APPLETON C.P. LUMB BROOK ROAD
(North End)

3/12 Lumb Brook Bridge
(an aqueduct).

II

Aqueduct carrying the Bridgewater Canal, 1770 (date on springer) by
James Brindley for the Duke of Bridgewater. Squared snecked Cyclopean
blocks of red and yellow sandstone with red brick lining to the deep
segmental arch for Lumb Brook Road. Slightly concave, broadly canted
and battered abutments. Ramped path from road to towpath has
sandstone retaining walls and simple post-and-rail fence. A brick
parapet wall, curved in plan, with 6 rectangular recessed panels to
outer side and concrete coping (probably rebuilt mid C20) protects the
towpath.

A semicircular arched sandstone culvert carries Lumb Brook diagonally
beneath the road through the aqueduct.

The northern half of the aqueduct is in Stockton Heath CP.
