SJ9558 : Rudyard Dam and Leek Canal Feeder Channel

taken 10 years ago, near to Rudyard, Staffordshire, Great Britain

Rudyard Dam and Leek Canal Feeder Channel
Rudyard Dam and Leek Canal Feeder Channel
In response to chronic water shortages, the Trent and Mersey Canal Company built Rudyard Reservoir between 1797 and 1801. The dam is an earth bank, faced with stone on the water side. The feeder channel takes water from the reservoir to the Leek Canal at Wall Grange. The Leek Canal then feeds into the summit level of Caldon Canal at Hazlehurst. The Caldon Canal in turn, feeds into the summit level of the Trent and Mersey at Etruria.
