2/5 Halfacre Lane Aqueduct


Aqueduct circa 1770 by James Brindley. Red sandstone and red-brown
brick. Segmental arch, largely of brick, has curved rake downward
towards centre. A small section at each end of the archway suggests a
slightly later lengthening. Side walls under archway have a curved
batter, with plinth to central portion. Curved, battered abutments of
stone have keystones and plain bands of stone backing brick voussoirs.
Plain cap of stone on south side; the corresponding band on north
side supports a plain brick parapet to towpath.
