Red Bull Aqueduct


Canal Aqueduct carrying the Macclesfield Canal branch of the Trent and Mersey Canal over Liverpool Road. Dated 1828. Red and blue English bond brick with ashlar dressings. The west side has a central archway with cambered arch having ashlar quoins to either side and chamfered ashlar voussoirs, the tunnel roof being lined with similarly chamfered stone. Above is a rectangular datestone with raised border inscribed "RED BULL/AQUEDUCT/MDCCCXXVIII". The retaining walls to either side are battered and curve forward slightly and have pilaster buttresses at either side. A large-scale roll-moulding separates the body of the bridge from the ashlar parapet. The retaining walls diminish in height beyond the pilaster buttresses and curve around until they are parallel to the road and terminate in low square piers with pyramidal ashlar caps. The east side is similar. This branch of the Macclesfield Canal was owned by the Trent and Mersey Canal Company and built by their engineers.
