London Road Bridge over the River Ribble
London Road Bridge over the River Ribble
This bridge carries the A6 London Road over the River Ribble at Walton-le-Dale. As the name of the road suggests, it was once the main road to London from Preston. It is close to the place at which the Battle of Preston was fought in the English Civil War of August 1648: Oliver Cromwell's army won an important victory over the Royalists. The building to the right of the bridge is the Bridge Inn.
