Two Bridges

Last week I showed you the bridge from Peel Street to Mansfield Road.

The view this week is from the opposite direction.

We are on the TransPennine trail which runs for 215 miles from Southport to Hornsea. For cyclists this is part of Route 62 of the National Cycle Network which links Glasson just south of Lancaster with Selby in Yorkshire via Blackpool, Preston, Southport, Stockport and Doncaster.

The tarmac path on the right is for cyclists and walkers whilst on the left is a bridleway for horseriders.

Originally this section was a freight railway line from Godley Junction to Apethorn carrying mainly coal from Yorkshire to Fiddler's Ferry Power Station on Merseyside.

Beyond Peel Street bridge can be seen the next bridge connecting Donald Avenue with Grange Road North.

For more bridges this Sunday visit San Francisco Bay Daily Photo.


  1. Feels as if they are just high enough to let time pass beneath. Great picture !

  2. Glad to see I was right with my guess about the bridleway. The bike route sounds intriguing... have thought about doing a tour on bike in your country ever since a friend of mine did it in 1986!

  3. Nice pic Gerald - looks like you caught one of those moments right after a shower!
