Details

SE31NE WALTON BARNSLEY CANAL

5/34 Blue Bridge, Haw Park

II

Accommodation bridge. Late C18. Hammer-dressed stone, parapet partly rendered. Single horse-shoe elliptical arch reinforced with heavily-grooved metal plates on south side to protect angle from wear of tow ropes. Set in middle of intrados on north side is vertical narrow groove rising from horizontal segmental-arched shallow recess close to water's edge (perhaps formerly to support a sluice gate). Splayed retaining walls. Band and parapet which terminate in square piers at either end.

The Act for the Barnsley Canal was passed in 1793 and constructed between 1793 and 1799. William Jessop was the consulting engineer and Samuel Hartley the resident engineer.
