SJ 58 SW FORMER RUNCORN U.D. MERSEY VIEW

5/111 Former Tide Dock of Bridgewater Canal and lock to north

GV II

Tide dock and retaining walls to lock, probably 1772. Sandstone blocks with some repairs in brick and concrete. Trapezoidal dock opening originally into the Mersey at its southern end, but now into the Manchester Ship Canal. The lock, which led to the series of locks at the beginning of the canal proper, is rebated for two sets of gates. These features appear to be all that survives from the former Runcorn terminus of the Bridgewater Canal.
