WHEELS FOR MARPLE

Canal Boat - - News -

Two ex­am­ples of 1790s en­gi­neer­ing at Marple have been awarded Trans­port Trust Red Wheel plaques. The aqueduct and the flight of 16 locks have been recog­nised by the scheme which com­mem­o­rates Bri­tain’s rich legacy in the de­vel­op­ment of trans­port. Marple Aqueduct has re­cently ben­e­fit­ted from a ma­jor restora­tion scheme as part of the £2.3 mil­lion Re­veal­ing Old­know’s Legacy Project. This links three sites con­nected with Sa­muel Old­know, who was in­stru­men­tal in the con­struc­tion of the canal.
