2/57 Drydock on Macclesfield
Canal at SJ 9314 7678.
Drydock and wet dock: c1830. Sandstone rubble walls with heavy
hammer-dressed sandstone blocks for a surround. Drydock has a long
rectangular plan which narrows at the west end to a wooden sluice gate
operated by a pulley on a C20 steel gantry. Floor canted towards a
central drain. A wet dock of similar shape and construction joins the
drydock to the canal.
This lies at the end of the tramway from Endon quarry to the canal and
no doubt serviced the boats carrying the stone slate.
