SJ8297 NEW ELM ROAD 698-1/18/245 (East side) Pair of culvert arches over River Medlock and associated overflow channel

GV II

Pair of culvert arches. Probably 1765, by James Brindley, for Duke of Bridgewater. Coursed squared sandstone. Two low segmental spans at an angle, over the outflows from the River Medlock culvert and the overflow culvert from the Giant's Basin, that on the right lower and with a plain arch-band. Part of hydraulic system by which the Bridgewater Canal terminus basin exploited the course of the River Medlock, which was diverted through a culvert running from east of Deansgate at Knott Mill to this position, and the canal overflow was returned to the river via a circular weir at Potato Wharf known as the Giant's Basin. Simple stucture of national historical importance. See also Giant's Basin, Potato Wharf, and Floodgate, Deansgate.
