3/34 Canal Aqueduct over Roddlesworth Water
- (that part in Livesey CP)
- II

Aqueduct carrying Leeds-Liverpool Canal over Roddlesworth Water, 1810-16,
Superintendent Engineer Joseph Priestley. Canal is carried on long
embankment pierced by an egg-shaped culvert with stone faced abutments,
which is the listed item. Rusticated rock-faced sandstone. Walls curve
inwards to give semicircular plan, are strongly battered and rise in a
continuous curve over the mouth of the culvert; low piers at the outer
ends, radiating masonry with a keystone over the arch flanked by
buttressing piers and crossed at the top by a projecting band. Some
decoration visible: band stones have punched faces, and those parts of
the buttresses not concealed by moss appear to have simple vermiculated
patterns. Item crosses boundary with Withnell CP in Chorley District.
