TEP were commissioned to provide proposals for the restoration of Worsley Delph along with designs for improving access and interpretation of this iconic site, part of which is designated as a Scheduled Ancient Monument.
The Delph has a rich heritage and was the ‘birthplace’ for the building of the Bridgewater Canal, acting as the portal between 46 miles of underground mine tunnels and the main navigation. The site played a significant role in the transportation of coal into Manchester which fuelled the Industrial Revolution.
TEP have produced three concept options which have been subject to a robust stakeholder and public consultation process. A final design has been developed and we are working towards a planning application and detailed design to support future funding applications as part of the Bridgewater Canal Corridor Masterplan.
