5/79 Dog Kennels Bridge


Canal bridge partly in the parishes of Harthill with Woodall, North and South
Anston and Wales. Dated 1811 or 1841 (obscure) altered. For the Chesterfield
Canal Company. Coursed, squared rubble limestone, brick soffit. Single span,
carries road over canal at turnover of towpath. Chamfered jambs and projecting
springing stones to chamfered, ashlar segmental arch, keystone with dated ledge
over. Abutment walls sweep round to form ramped retaining walls of footpaths
leading from road to towpath; north-east wall returns at a right angle whilst
that to north-west terminates in rebuilt end pier. Upper part of east parapet
rebuilt in blue brick as in most of west parapet, rounded stone copings. C20
trunking fixed to east side of bridge. Spans the Chesterfield Canal surveyed
by James Brindley and built between 1771 and 1777. Datestone here probably
refers to arch alteration in keeping with other bridges along the canal which
are mostly of brick throughout and dated c1840.
