Company of Proprietors of the Macclesfield Canal
Records of the Company of Proprietors of the Macclesfield Canal: plans of weirs 1828, sketch for towing path bridge 1835, plan of Todds Brook Reservoir 1837.
The records comprising this fonds have been deposited in the British Waterways Archive, Gloucester between 1963 and 2002. The material has come to the archive gradually over the years and many of the individual records, although indexed, have never been fully accessioned. As a result of this the exact provenance of much of the material and how it was collected is unknown. Most of the material has come from various British Waterways' offices, but some has been deposited by both British Waterways' employees and individuals with a background and/or interest in waterways. There are also a number of records which have been purchased from auction.
