SJ 65 SW
Nantwich Aqueduct

Aqueduct carrying the main line of the Shropshire Union Canal over the Chester to
Nantwich Road. Circa 1826 (consultant T. Telford). Stone dressed brick abutements
with cast-iron trough. Cast iron segmental arch with ribbed soffit. Triangular
sunken panels to spandrels with five flange-bolted panels at trough level. The
bridge arch sits on moulded stone imposts which return across the faces of stone
pilasters which flank the carriageway opening. The pilasters continue upwards to
become square piers with four-way weathered caps above a projecting band at parapet
level. The piers support the cast-iron balustrade over the highway and on top of
the curved embankment retaining walls. The impost continues as a string course
across the embankment wall and the pier base bands become the coping. The curved,
horizontal sections of the embankment wall terminate as pilasters and piers similar
to those which flank the carriageway opening.
