Bridge #126
Bridge #126 takes a footpath that connects Grange Road North to Grange Road South over the former railway line from Godley Junction to Apethorn. The "Cheshire Lines Committee (CLC)" route opened in 1866. Following the electrification of the Woodhead line in 1954 and until 1981 when the through route to Sheffield closed, the main traffic on the line consisted of trains from the Yorkshire coalfield to the Fiddlers Ferry power station. Most of the former trackbed is now utilised by the Trans Pennine Trail and National Cycle Network Route #62
