Sunday Stroll: Park Bridge


Whether or not you got out for a walk over the Christmas or New Year break, you can still enjoy today's view at Park Bridge.

This view, like the one in December, looks down from what was once the railway embankment leading to the long-gone railway viaduct.

We see some of the remains of the cotton mill and iron works that were situated here. The River Medlock flows through the valley and on the right the road climbs towards Alt Hill. In the distance, to the right of centre, the shape of Harridge Pike above Millbrook can just be made out through the haze.

Park Bridge can now be reached easily on foot from Ashton by using the new path which follows the old railway line from Turner Lane and Cranbourne Road.
