4/8 Clays Farm Bridge.

II

Accommodation bridge for Clays Farm over the Chester to Nantwich length of the Shropshire Union Canal, circa. 1779 probably by J Clowes Engineer (or Thomas Telford during the 1797 restorations). Red brick with stone copings. Projecting carriage arch one brick deep. Steeply humped and of only one vehicle width but with wide curved parapets to both approaches. On the south side of the bridge there is a narrow tunnel running west to east through the abutments: this is semicircular arched with an inverted arch base and finishes just short of the east side of the bridge, where there are four ventilation holes. The tunnel is a store for timbers used for canal drainage and repair work. The west parapet coping is of rectangular section whereas the coping on the east parapet is semicircular; both have metal cramps and appear to be original.
