"B" is for "Bridge" and today's photo shows Riversvale Bridge, which crosses the River Medlock to the north of Ashton.
If you thought that Ashton under Lyne was completely made up of cotton mills and terraced brick houses then it may come as a surprise to find that this picture was taken within the boundary of Ashton.
The bridge at one time carried the winding main carriage road between Ashton and Oldham across the River Medlock, between Taunton and Bardsley, before the straight Turnpike road was built through Waterloo, taking a direct route.
These days the road across the bridge is used only by walkers, cyclists and horses making use of the network of paths in Daisy Nook Country Park. To the right of where I was standing to take the photo once stood the imposing Riversvale Hall demolished in the 1940s.
