6/45 Canal bridge no. 26.


Canal bridge: C1830 by William Crosley for the Macclesfield Canal
Company. Hammer-dressed buff sandstone. Built on an acute angle to
canal so that arch is a broad horseshoe elliptical arch with the

Ramp to south-west corner.

Because built on the skew, visually more attractive than the standard
canal bridge.
