Goyt Aqueduct and River

 Trying to dodge the showers we set out for a quick walk to see if we could get under the aqueduct and viaduct

 You can see here that the canal aqueduct is a stone trough with no parapet on the off side and only a 12” raise in the coping stone edge

 Looking down approx 100 feet to the River Goyt ...

 … and the arches below.

 We walked towards Marple Locks and took a left turn down the embankment to where the Rivers Goyt and Etherow meet

 at Brabyns Park Iron Bridge

By this time it was raining so we hurried home - perhaps if the weather’s better tomorrow we’ll walk the ‘other’ way to see if we can get under the arches!
