Trafford Bridge over the River Gowy
Trafford Bridge over the River Gowy
Looking across the very wide Trafford Bridge over the River Gowy. The centre of the bridge and the river are the boundary between Mickle Trafford on this side and Bridge Trafford on the far side - SJ4471 : Trafford Bridge parapet and parish boundary. This is the A56 road which, before the building of the M56 motorway, was the main route between Chester and Frodsham. I'm fairly certain that this bridge was once a bottleneck and was widened about 40 years ago. It certainly looks far too wide to be an original 200 year old bridge.
