How to find the aqueduct (is actually quite easy to find......)
Proceed down Sharps Lane from Bury Street, this road becomes Hill Lane. Turn right in to Orchard Close and follow it to, almost, its end where it crosses the River Pinn by way of a small footbridge. Just before the footbridge, on the left, Woodville Gardens will be seen. Proceed all the way down this road to the end, where it finishes at a gate blocking the entrance to a field.
Pass through the gate and turn sharp right. Through the grass a "path" of sorts can be seen leading to a wooded area, where this becomes more defined in to the woods. The aqueduct is just in to the wooded area. gg
