SJ 99 SE MARPLE PEAK FOREST CANAL 2/126 Goyt Aqueduct (that part 29.3.66 in Marple)

G.V. I

Canal aqueduct over River Goyt. Between 1794 and 1801. Benjamin Outram and Thomas Brown engineers. Ashlar, dressed and rock-faced stone. 3 wide spans nearly 30m. high. Semi- circular arches rise from large red sandstone semi-circular- ended pylons. They are separated by square battered antae with moulded bases and capitals which form a heavy band below the coped parapet walls which sweep out at each end to be terminated in square piers. Pierced circular opening in each spandrel with ashlar dressings. Tension bars and plates are a later remedial measure. The tow path side (south) has a taller parapet with rounded copings, passing places being formed in the depth of the antae. An outstanding piece of engineering and design on a monumental scale.
