Luddenden Foot
6/181 Canal Bridge
- II
Road bridge over canal. c1798 for the Rochdale Canal Company, widened c1882 probably
for the Luddenden Foot Local Board of Health. Coursed squared stone and ashlar.
Single segmental arch spanning canal. The central core of c1800 is carried on the
canal walls which curve inwards with large kerbstones. The outer arches which flank
it to north and south are slightly taller, the southern one having an iron arch,
the northern one ashlar voussoirs. On both the stone is rock-faced and there is
a moulded ashlar band below ashlar parapet which has a plinth on the carriageway
side and triangular section coping. Flanking the arch on each face are battered
buttresses with bands (dentilled on south side), rising into ashlar piers with
pyramidal capstones. The later work is in the same style as the bridge over the
River Calder (6/242)Which was erected by the Local Board of Health in 1882. For
history of canal construction see Sowerby Long Bridge (12/177).
