Bridge over New Bailey Street at Salford Central Station.

Salford Central Railway Station, opened in 1838 as the terminus and head offices of the Manchester, Bolton and Bury Railway, has three bridges, taking trains to and from Manchester Victoria Station. The three unique bridges that span New Bailey Street are an example of the lack of cooperation between railway companies at the time. Influenced by the Greek style, they are each different in design and are each individually Grade II or II* listed buildings.

This is the northernmost bridge (English Heritage ID:471585 LinkExternal link )viewed from the opposite side of Chapel Street. It was built in 1844 for the Lancashire and Yorkshire Railway.

A view of the southern bridge (English Heritage ID:471586 LinkExternal link ) also built in 1844 but for the Liverpool and Manchester Railway can be seen at SJ8398 : Southern Railway Viaduct and Colonnade, Salford.

The central bridge (English Heritage ID: 471584 LinkExternal link ) is squeezed in between the other two and is almost impossible to photograph from street level. It was added in 1865.
