Lune Aqueduct a98_05166

LUNE AQUEDUCT, Lancaster Canal, Lancashire. The Lune Aqueduct near Halton carries the Preston to Kendal Canal over the River Lune. It was built by John Rennie in 1791, but was so expensive that it compromised the funding of the remainder of the canal network. General perspective view photographed by Eric de Mare

EDITORS COMMENTS
This photograph showcases the Lune Aqueduct, an engineering marvel located near Halton in Lancashire. Built by the renowned civil engineer John Rennie in 1791, this aqueduct carries the Preston to Kendal Canal gracefully over the River Lune. The Lune Aqueduct is a testament to the ingenuity and innovation of the Georgian era, as it allows the canal to cross the river without interruption, maintaining the continuity of the waterway. The image, captured by the skilled lens of Eric de Mare, offers a general perspective view of the aqueduct, revealing its impressive arched design and the tranquil waters of the canal flowing beneath. The River Lune, with its gentle current, adds to the serene beauty of the scene. The construction of the Lune Aqueduct was a significant undertaking, both in terms of engineering expertise and financial resources. The cost of building this structure compromised the funding for the remainder of the canal network, highlighting the challenges faced during the development of the canal system in England during the late 18th century. Despite the financial strains, the Lune Aqueduct remains a remarkable achievement, showcasing the determination and vision of those who envisioned and executed the ambitious project. It stands as a symbol of the engineering prowess of the past and continues to captivate visitors with its timeless elegance and historical significance.
