Canal Boat - - News -

The Grade II listed Nantwich Aqueduct was re­opened in early De­cem­ber fol­low­ing a painstak­ing two-month restora­tion project. The £235,000 work by the Canal & River Trust in­volved re­mov­ing lay­ers of old paint, re­plac­ing a miss­ing cast iron panel, re­pairs to the stone and brick­work and ap­ply­ing four coats of new paint. The 1826 Thomas Telford struc­ture car­ries the Shrop­shire Union Canal over the A534 Ch­ester Road. The project was funded by CRT, lo­cal and parish coun­cils, The Pil­grim Trust and Nantwich Part­ner­ship. Marc Evans, project man­ager, said his team had “walked in the foot­steps of Thomas Telford”.
