LIVERPOOL ROAD EAST
Red Bull Aqueduct
Canal Aqueduct carrying the Macclesfield Canal branch of the Trent and
Mersey Canal over Liverpool Road. Dated 1828. Red and blue English
bond brick with ashlar dressings. The west side has a central archway
with cambered arch having ashlar quoins to either side and chamfered
ashlar voussoirs, the tunnel roof being lined with similarly chamfered
stone. Above is a rectangular datestone with raised border inscribed
"RED BULL/AQUEDUCT/MDCCCXXVIII". The retaining walls to either side
are battered and curve forward slightly and have pilaster buttresses
at either side. A large-scale roll-moulding separates the body of the
bridge from the ashlar parapet. The retaining walls diminish in
height beyond the pilaster buttresses and curve around until they are
parallel to the road and terminate in low square piers with pyramidal
ashlar caps. The east side is similar. This branch of the
Macclesfield Canal was owned by the Trent and Mersey Canal Company and
built by their engineers.
