Wyre Aqueduct, Garstang, Lancashire, UK, 15 October, 2006

Though plainly much smaller, at 33.5 m (110') long and 10.3 m (34') high, the canal aqueduct was designed by John Rennie, the same engineer as Lancaster's Lune Aqueduct, which it strongly resembles. Though this is a single span compared to the Lune Aqueduct's five, the curved ends and detailing are very similar (particularly the Doric (I think) cornice), and the purpose is the same: to carry the Lancaster Canal over the river. By definition, both aqueducts entered service at the same time, in 1797.
