All of the three lines (originally) which run parallel to the River Irwell are on substantial viaducts at this point. The most easterly now carries the railway to Warrington (Central) and is constructed of red brick, while the more westerly (now carrying the Metrolink) are built with blue brick. It is fine to see such grand engineering still in use so long after its conception.
