Details

HYDE PEAK FOREST CANAL SJ 99 NW 3/31 Manchester Road - Canal Bridge

G.V. II

Roving bridge and road bridge. 1804 but widened on both sides in the C19 and C20. Snecked, rock-faced and hammer- dressed stone, brick, cast iron and concrete. The original elliptical-arch tunnel which is grooved for stop planks was widened to the north in the mid-C19 with a truncated elliptical keystone arch which is now partly obscured by the C20 footpath bridge. The south was widened later in C19 in brick and is separated from the tow-path bridge by two pipelines. The tow-path bridge has a spiral walkway, panelled cast iron parapet walls and a flat stone slab deck. Interest stems from the bridges evolutionary development.
