Smithy Bridge signalbox
When photographed, the signalbox was still a block post and in control of the level crossing. The signalbox was downgraded to a gate box later in 2011 with signalling duties passed to the new Rochdale West signalbox (located at Castleton). Gate control was also transferred to Rochdale West on January 27th 2014, rendering Smithy Bridge signalbox redundant.
