SJ 43 SE CANAL (Edstaston
5/210 Boodles Bridge
Canal bridge. Circa 1800-06 on the Prees branch of William Jessop's
and Thomas Telford's Ellesmere Canal. Red brick with minor engineering
brick patching; coped stone parapet. Single elliptical arch with
keybricks, string course, parapet and corner piers. The Prees Branch
was originally intended to reach Prees Higher Heath but by 1806 had
only got as far as Quina Brook, near Edstaston, where it was decided
to terminate it. The Ellesmere Canal Company amalgamated with the
Chester Canal Company in 1813 and became part of the Shropshire Union
in 1846. Charles Hadfield, Canals of the West Midlands (3rd edn.
1985) pp.177-8, 331.
