BASCHURCH C.P., WESTONWHARF, Limekilns approx. 60m north-east of Bridge Farmhouse

II

Limekilns, now disused. 1797 on the Hordley to Weston section of the proposed Shrewsbury Branch of William Jessop's and Thomas Telford's Ellesmere Canal. Roughly coursed limestone rubble mainly concealed by earth mound. Three segmental-arched openings with red brick and engineering brick heads. This section of canal opened in 1797 and a wharf, four limekilns, public house, stables, clerk's house and a weighing machine were built here. In the event the canal got no nearer Shrewsbury and the project was abandoned at this point. This section of canal was disused by 1917 when the banks burst at Dandyford a few miles to the north of Westonwharf. Bridge Farmhouse is not included in this list.
