LANCASTER

SD46SE CATON ROAD
1685-1/1/61 (East side (off))
Dolphinlee Bridge (No.105)

II

Accommodation bridge. c1797. Designed by John Rennie
(engineer). For the Lancaster Canal Company. Coursed squared
sandstone. Semi-elliptical arch with a triple keystone, of
which the central part is rock-faced, a band and parapets with
rounded copings and rectangular terminals. At the water line
in the side of the towpath wall, and on the further side of
the arch, are segment-headed recesses with a central slot;
these were made to hold temporary shuttering to isolate
sections of the canal, and thus prevent water loss in the
event of repairs or a breach.
