Restoration work begins on historic aqueduct in Ashton-under-Lyne
 

Restoration work has began on a Grade II listed aqueduct in Ashton-under-Lyne.
The aqueduct, which carries the Peak Forest Canal over the River Tame, is being transformed as part of a £500,000 project being carried out by the Canal and River Trust.
Work will involved repairs to the three masonry arches, repainting stonework and reconstruction of the aqueduct parapet.
The structure has been vandalised in the past, while weeds and shrubs have encroached on it over the years.
