Listing Text

SJ 99 NW
3/31 Manchester Road
- Canal Bridge


Roving bridge and road bridge. 1804 but widened on both
sides in the C19 and C20. Snecked, rock-faced and hammer-
dressed stone, brick, cast iron and concrete. The original
elliptical-arch tunnel which is grooved for stop planks was
widened to the north in the mid-C19 with a truncated
elliptical keystone arch which is now partly obscured by the
C20 footpath bridge. The south was widened later in C19 in
brick and is separated from the tow-path bridge by two
pipelines. The tow-path bridge has a spiral walkway,
panelled cast iron parapet walls and a flat stone slab deck.
Interest stems from the bridges evolutionary development.
