Halton bridge
Halton bridge
This bridge was built in 1913 to connect Halton village with its station, on the opposite side of the river. It is the third bridge on this site, and was built using parts of the old (1861) `Greyhound' Midland Railway bridge in Lancaster SD4762.
The railway closed in 1966 but it was many years before the bridge was refurbished to its current state. It now provides a useful short cut to the M6.
