Croxton Aqueduct :: Shared Description

Croxton Aqueduct, allowing the Trent & Mersey Canal to cross the River Dane, was replaced as a narrow aqueduct after the broad aqueduct, built by James Brindley in 1777, was washed away in a flood about 1935. This is now the southern limit of navigation for broad boats which can no longer reach Middlewich Broad Lock but it is unlikely broad boats ever venture this far. Part of the original Brindley aqueduct can be seen on the banks of the Dane.
