SJ 63 NE ADDERLEY C.P. SHROPSHIRE UNION CANAL

6/10 Bridge No. 69 (Adderley - Wharf Bridge)

GV II

Canal bridge. Circa 1830. Thomas Telford and Alexander Easton, engineers. Dressed red/yellow sandstone with tooled ashlar dressings. Elliptical arch with voussoirs and flush keystones. Chamfered string and parapet with square end piers and rounded coping. Slightly battered and curved abutments. Cast-iron corner posts on towpath side with grooves formed by rope haulage. Oval cast-iron number plate to south. This stretch of canal was built as 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. This bridge is slightly different from most on this stretch of the canal as it is not humped-backed but spans the short cutting at an angle to the horizontal. The bridge marks the top end of the Adderley flight of locks. Charles Hadfield, The Canals of the West Midlands, pp. 183-9.
