Details

SJ 68 NW APPLETON C.P. LUMB BROOK ROAD (North End) 3/12 Lumb Brook Bridge (an aqueduct).

II

Aqueduct carrying the Bridgewater Canal, 1770 (date on springer) by James Brindley for the Duke of Bridgewater. Squared snecked Cyclopean blocks of red and yellow sandstone with red brick lining to the deep segmental arch for Lumb Brook Road. Slightly concave, broadly canted and battered abutments. Ramped path from road to towpath has sandstone retaining walls and simple post-and-rail fence. A brick parapet wall, curved in plan, with 6 rectangular recessed panels to outer side and concrete coping (probably rebuilt mid C20) protects the towpath.

A semicircular arched sandstone culvert carries Lumb Brook diagonally beneath the road through the aqueduct.

The northern half of the aqueduct is in Stockton Heath CP.
