Listing Text

LYMM CP
SJ 68 NW THE BRIDGEWATER CANAL
(South Side)

1/35 Covered Canal Dock
(north of Henry Street)
II

Covered Canal Dock circa 1770, probably by James Brindley, of local
brown brick. Round-arched opening to canal with simple brick face
gives entry to a dock circa 25 metres by 3 metres, with barrel-vaulted
roof. Brick plinth about 0.5 metre above water level, with rear end semi-
circular in plan; immediately behind the rear of the dock the tunnel was
later closed by a brick wall with a sandstone block slotted, apparently,
to accommodate mooring tackle.

The dock is stated to have been used for supplying a coal-yard on land
since redeveloped at its south end.
