    Sankey Viaduct The viaduct was built between 1828 and 1830 by George Stephenson for the Liverpool and Manchester Railway Company to enable the railway to cross the line of the Sankey Canal with sufficient clearance for the Mersey flats, the sailing vessels for which the canal was constructed. It is recorded in the National Heritage List for England as a designated Grade I listed building, and described as "the earliest major railway viaduct in the world"
