SJ 63 SE LOGGERHEADS C.P SHROPSHIRE UNION CANAL
11/163 Berrisford Canal
Canal aqueduct. C.1830. Thomas Telford and Alexander Easton, engineers.
Coursed sandstone, rusticated to soffit; late C20 red brick parapet to
west side and railings to.east. Wide round-headed arch to tunnel with
low imposts carried through as string courses and voussoirs struck
through continuously to soffit; steeply inclined and angled revetment
walls to east and west with stone coping. A straight flight of steps
to south-west gives access from road to canal. This stretch of canal
formerly formed part of the Birmingham and Liverpool Junction Canal
(Act passed 1826, opened 1835), which was absorbed by the Ellesmere
and Chester Canal in 1845 and eventually became part of the Shropshire
Union in 1846. Despite the parapet to west side, still an impressive
structure. V.C.H. II, ( 1967), p.295; Charles Hadfield, The Canals of
the West Midlands, (1966), Pp.183-9.
