SJ 42 NW
12/41 Limekilns approx.
- 60m north-east of
Bridge Farmhouse
- II
Limekilns, now disused. 1797 on the Hordley to Weston section of the
proposed Shrewsbury Branch of William Jessop's and Thomas Telford's
Ellesmere Canal. Roughly coursed limestone rubble mainly concealed by
earth mound. 3 segmental-arched openings with red brick and engineering
brick heads. This section of canal opened in 1797 and a wharf, 4 lime-
kilns, public house, stables, clerk's house and a weighing machine were
built here. In the event the canal got no nearer Shrewsbury and the pro-
ject was abandoned at this point. This section of canal was disused by
1917 when the banks burst at Dandyford a few miles to the north of
Westonwharf. Bridge Farmhouse is not included in this list. Charles
