branches of
Canal at
- The Delph

Bridge. Originally c.1760 but successively rebuilt, repaired
and enlarged in C19 and C20. Dressed stone, brick, ashlar
and iron railings. To west of No. 3 Worsley Road are 2
arches: the first is a small semi-circular brick arch
designed to accommodate M boats from the mine before trans-
shipment, the second a large blind segmental brick arch with
stone band, constructed when the road was widened and raised
in level. 2 similar arches, one blind and one open, occur-to
the east of No. 3. Above the arches is built up in brick,
stone or in some places rock and the parapet is either brick
with a round-topped stone coping or iron railings spanning
between shaped ashlar posts with caps.
