- footbridge


Lock and adjoining footbridge. 1803 to 1805. Benjamin Outram
and Thomas Brown engineers, financed by S. Oldknow and
R. Arkwright and built by James and Fox. Dressed stone and
ashlar. Single upper gate, double lower gate and footbridge
at lower end. 4m. pound-to-pound level to accommodate
steepness of slope. Lock walls in large coursed stone blocks
with rounded verge. The mouth is grooved for stop planks.
The gates have been overhauled and are fully functional. The
footbridge has a segmental, rusticated keystone arch, an
ashlar band and parapet walls which have been rebuilt and
which are terminated by a battered square pier at one end
with a small abutting flight of steps, and sweeps down at
the other end to the level of the pound.
