------------------------------------

WHIXALL C.P. SHROPSHIRE UNION SJ 43 SE CANAL (Edstaston Branch) 5/207 Allman's Bridge - GV II Canal lift bridge. Probably c.1800-06 with later repairs on the Prees branch of William Jessop's and Thomas Telford's Ellesmere Canal. Wooden bascule bridge operated by counterweight and chain system. The Prees branch was originally intended to reach Prees Higher Heath but by 1806 had only got as far as Quina Brook, near Edstaston, where it was decided to terminate it. The Ellesmere Canal Company amalgamated with the Chester Canal Company in 1813 and became part of the Shropshire Union in 1846. Charles Hadfield, Canals of the West Midlands (3rd edn. 1985) p.331.
