Clifton Aqueduct

Clifton Aqueduct

One of three aqueducts built on the Manchester Bolton and Bury canal by Charles Roberts and John Nightingale in 1796.

This stone structure with it's three brick arches represents a second crossing of the River Irwell for the canal, and is now a grade 2 listed monument. Like its counterpart, the Prestolee Aqueduct, this structure stand patiently waiting for the ongoing restoration project to reach it and return boats to it's navigation channel.
