Listing Text

SJ 99 SE MARPLE PEAK FOREST
CANAL
2/126 Goyt Aqueduct
(that part
29.3.66 in Marple)

G.V. I


Canal aqueduct over River Goyt. Between 1794 and 1801.
Benjamin Outram and Thomas Brown engineers. Ashlar, dressed
and rock-faced stone. 3 wide spans nearly 30m. high. Semi-
circular arches rise from large red sandstone semi-circular-
ended pylons. They are separated by square battered antae
with moulded bases and capitals which form a heavy band
below the coped parapet walls which sweep out at each end to
be terminated in square piers. Pierced circular opening in
each spandrel with ashlar dressings. Tension bars and plates
are a later remedial measure. The tow path side (south) has
a taller parapet with rounded copings, passing places being
formed in the depth of the antae. An outstanding piece of
engineering and design on a monumental scale.
