SD9011 : The 'Bridge Inn', Rochdale

The 'Bridge Inn', Rochdale
The 'Bridge Inn', Rochdale
Technically speaking this four-square pub. of solid Accrington brick stands at the extreme southern end of Well i' th' Lane: its name comes from the bridge over Sudden Brook immediately south of the pub., and it is this bridge that marks the transition between Well i' th' Lane to the north, and Platting Lane to the south. Both of these are very old roads and part of the earliest route from Rochdale to Oldham, before the modern Oldham road was cut. The coming of the bypass in the form of Queensway and, later, Kingsway, altered the geography of the area substantially, and the bit south of Queensway seemed to lose identity as part of Well i' th' Lane.
