The Old Tram Bridge, Preston
The Old Tram Bridge, Preston
Constructed for commercial use, not public transport. Between 1802 and 1854 horse-drawn trains transported coal, cotton and wool between the Lancaster Canal and the Leeds-Liverpool Canal. It was reconstructed in the 1960s and is now a useful foot and cycle bridge over the River Ribble. The wooden beams were replaced by concrete look-alikes.
