Wey and Arun Junction Canal
A low slung four arch brick built aqueduct, carrying the Wey and Arun Junction Canal over Cranleigh Waters.
This aqueduct was engineered by Josias Jessop (son of William) and completed 1816 as part of an inland through route between London and Portsmouth during a time of war with France. By the time the canal was complete the war was over and its main raison detre removed. It did trade profitably for 50 years or so before the railway from which this photo way taken, took over.
The north east side was partially destroyed, possibly when the railway was dismantled but its north west face remains intact.
