Saughall Massie Bridge
Saughall Massie Bridge
This was built in 1829. At this time, shipwrecking was still practised at Leasowe, and this road enabled constables to cross the marshes to apprehend the wreckers. The bridge is significant in that it was the first bridge to be built by Thomas Brassey (1805-1870). He was a civil engineer in the same league as the Stephensons, Telford and Brunel and his company built a substantial portion of the world's railways. See LinkExternal link
