Leek Aqueduct

Leek Aqueduct
Caldon Canal
November 2010

Update October 2011

A further visit provided an opportunity for a further view:

The Caldon is blessed with a number of aqueducts but perhaps the humblest is the structure at the far end of the Leek Arm. This carried the canal over a river and on for quarter of a mile to a teminus now occupied by a scrayard.

The watercourse is no more and the channel has been infilled, leaving the aqueduct as an overengineered footbridge to the winding hole where the feeder from the Rudyard reservoir runs in.
