LITTLE LEIGH C.P. TRENT AND MERSEY CANAL
SJ 67 NW
2/48 Willowgreen Bridge
(Canal bridge No.208)
Canal accommodation bridge: early/mid C19 for the Trent and Mersey
Canal Co. Washed English garden wall bond purple-red brick. Bridge
abutments carry slightly cambered cast-iron I-beams on stone pads.
These have the foundry name T.SHORE & SONS ENGINEERS HANLEY STAFFS.
Above is a plain parapet with a rounded brick coping. The bridge ends
in pilasters with stone caps. Under the roadway are shallow barrel
vaults of opus signinum, carried by the I-beams.
This form of construction was introduced in the early C19 for fire
proofing factories and is unusual in a canal engineering context.
