ABC Wednesday: Bridge

Today's post for ABC Wednesday is B for Bridge.

Like last week's photo, this is another image showing the Ashton Canal. This location, on the boundary between Ashton and Audenshaw, shows a disused railway bridge crossing the canal.

In the background is Guidebridge Mill, the largest cotton mill to have been built in Ashton. The photo was taken last year before the trees shed their leaves!

See Birds Eye View of this location.

  1. I'd hope it'd be used for pedestrian crossings, at least

  4. Bridhes always make lovely photos

  5. I lived on South St for a while just before moving to Los Angeles.
    The row of houses we were in were in Audenshaw! as is Guide Mill.
    The bridge carried the line from Ashton Moss Junction (South) to Guide Bridge.

  6. Hello Ian. The mill in the photo is Guidebridge Mill (or Guide Bridge Mill). When it was built, it was in Ashton. The boundary ran along the canal at this point. See your 1848 map. (Think of where the Boundary Inn is.) The boundary may have been moved later, but it was still the largest cotton mill to have been built in Ashton! (Guide Mill is at the other end of South Street.)

  7. Hello.
    Shame to abandon such a beautiful bridge.
    Nice photo shot.
    Thanks for sharing.
