The entry shall be amended to read:- SJ 65 SW CHESTER ROAD 4/95 Nantwich Aqueduct II*

------------------------------------ The following building shall be added:

ACTON CHESTER ROAD SJ 65 SW Nantwich Aqueduct 4/95 II

Aqueduct carrying the main line of the Shropshire Union Canal over the Chester to Nantwich Road. Circa 1826 (consultant T. Telford). Stone dressed brick abutements with cast-iron trough. Cast iron segmental arch with ribbed soffit. Triangular sunken panels to spandrels with five flange-bolted panels at trough level. The bridge arch sits on moulded stone imposts which return across the faces of stone pilasters which flank the carriageway opening. The pilasters continue upwards to become square piers with four-way weathered caps above a projecting band at parapet level. The piers support the cast-iron balustrade over the highway and on top of the curved embankment retaining walls. The impost continues as a string course across the embankment wall and the pier base bands become the coping. The curved, horizontal sections of the embankment wall terminate as pilasters and piers similar to those which flank the carriageway opening.
