Bridge 158
Bridge 158
Type: Canalside
Submitted by:David Whipp
Item Location: Bridge 158, Leeds and Liverpool Canal, Greenberfield, Barnoldswick BB18 5SU

Description:

When the Act of Parliament was passed to allow the construction of the Leeds and Liverpool Canal through Barnoldswick and into Lancashire, it included a requirement for the canal to be bridged with permanent structures where its course cut across highways and byways, rather than the swing bridges used along much of the canal's length.

The bridges constructed were hump backed with a masonry arch spanning the waterway and the canal towpath.

Some of the original bridges remain and several can be seen on the canal as it passes through the Barnoldswick area.

Bridge 158 is a bridge which has been rebuilt with a concrete arch.

The bridge is just to the north of Greenberfield Locks and carries the towpath from one side of the canal to the other.
