SJ2588 : Saughall Massie Bridge

taken 9 years ago, near to Upton, Wirral, Great Britain

Saughall Massie Bridge
Saughall Massie Bridge
Saughall Massie bridge was the first bridge built by Thomas Brassey in 1829. It was built as part of a scheme to drain water from this part of the Wirral, to help the building of roads. The new roads also allowed access to a previously lawless area, and the police constables soon ended the 'Wrecker' culture that had grown here, where boats were lured into the marsh land by false lights and then raided.

Arrowe Brook flows under the bridge.
