Old Sag Aqueduct

Old Sag Aqueduct Dobcross
Huddersfield Narrow Canal

Just to the east of the Dobcross Transhipment Warehouse lies Old Sag Aqueduct which carries the canal over Diggle Brook.

Right from the start this aqueduct suffered and the profile of its arch distorted under the weight of water it carried. Like a weebil, it wobbled but didnt fall down, bending but stabilising itself. When the canal was reopened it was repaired using a new steel liner, but the peculiar sag was left in place.
