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
Looking over the 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!
