Showrick Bridge
Showrick Bridge
Large foot bridge over the River Alt on a footpath from Bells Lane Lydiate to Sefton and Lunt.
There has been a bridge here from as early as the 18th century. The bridge was destroyed for military reasons in 1915 by the armed forces, it is not known what the reasons were.
The bridge was not replaced after the war.
In 1959 following historical research by The Ramblers Association, a public inquiry established that the footpaths between Sefton and Lunt Village and Bells Lane Lydiate were public footpaths.
The new Showrick Bridge was built by Sefton Council in partnership with Lancashire County Council in 1998 with grant support from the Countryside Commission and The Environment Agency.
