Sunday in Saddleworth: Saddleworth Viaduct

(Click photo for larger version. Press Back button to return here.)

We take another visit to Saddleworth today, after a period of unintentionally ignoring it!

This is the view looking along the Huddersfield Narrow Canal southwards from Brownhill Bridge, Dobcross. The canal enters Lime Kiln Lock, where it drops ten feet to the next level, which passes beneath the giant central skew arch of Saddleworth Viaduct. This carries the Manchester to Huddersfield Railway.

What you can't see is that immediately before the lock, the canal passes over an aqueduct across the River Tame. The building on the left is Brownhill Countryside Centre.

See Google Street View of this location.


  1. Those canals look geat. Do they still have narrow boats traveling on them?
