Brabyns Park Iron Bridge
Brabyns Park Iron Bridge
The Iron Bridge was built in 1813, for the then owner of the Brabyns Estate, Nathaniel Wright. Its purpose was as a carriage bridge across the River Goyt, creating access to Wright's estate from the village of Compstall. The bridge was one of the world's first cast iron bridges and is one of the few remaining from the period.

A restoration project started in 2003 and works to rescue the bridge started in September 2007. The restored bridge was opened on the 22nd June 2008.
