MANCHESTER SJ8498 STORE STREET 698-1/17/413 Store Street Aqueduct GV II* Canal aqueduct. c.1794-99. Coursed squared sandstone. Straight aqueduct approx.70m long, crossing Store Street at approx.45 degrees, with skewed semi-elliptical archway (the soffit now rendered), with 6 triangular buttresses (like cutwaters with refuges) on the north side and 4 on the south side; radiating voussoirs to the arches, 2 bands on the south side and one on the north side, coped parapets. Probably one of the earliest canal aqueducts with a skewed arch.
