Walk Mill Bridge


Today's photo shows Walk Mill Bridge across the Ashton Canal.

This bridge looks very modern - in fact it was completed only a few weeks ago, replacing an older bridge that has been there for more than 200 years. When the original bridge was built its purpose was to carry horses and carts across the canal. It was unable to cope with the modern articulated lorries that need access to the factories between the canal and the river.

This is bridge number 28 on the Ashton Canal, and is at the the bottom end of Margaret Street, close to Portland Basin.

  2. I do like the rustic look of the new bridge--I'm sure the old bridge was beautiful too.
