CANAL BASIN AND ASSOCIATED CULVERT AND CANAL LINING AT SE3930 0095

II

Canal basin and associated culvert and canal lining c1798 for the Dearne and Dove Canal Company. Tooled coursed squared stone with ashlar dressings and large, round-edged coping stones; some brick to culvert; later iron railings around basin survive only in part. The rectangular basin lies parallel to the canal on its south-east side; leading off from its north-west and north-east corners (and parallel to the canal) are arms in which barges could wait; leading off from its south-west and south-east corners and at right-angles to the canal are cuts in which barges could stand while being loaded and in the ends of which are paired overflow channels set below the coping and rectangular sluices (gates and winding gear removed) at a lower level; the overflow channels and sluices emptied into the culvert which runs along this side of the basin. The culvert is stone-lined and segmental-arched and bottomed; at its south-west end (the entrance) is a small segmental archway below brick retaining wall, water being channelled into this by later stone-coped retaining walls; at its north end (the exit) is a large, skewed, segmental archway with rock-faced voussoirs and spandrels and stone retaining wall above the parapet rebuilt. The basin was formerly linked to the canal by a narrow channel spanned by a tow path bridge: the channel has been infilled and the bridge removed, but there remain the curved corners of the channel surmounted by monolithic coping stones, and a short stretch of stone lining along the adjacent canal bank. The Elsecar branch of the Dearne and Dove Canal, on which the basin is situated, was the first part of the Dearne and Dove Canal to be opened. It was funded by a loan from Lord Fitz- william (who had extensive interests in Elsecar) and opened to traffic in December 1798. The basin is now empty and silted up (September 1987).
