Knutsford Road swing bridge
Knutsford Road swing bridge
The view regularly seen by car drivers in pre-motorway days waiting to make a dash for the high level bridge over the Manchester Ship Canal if the swing bridge was closed. No lorries could use the "escape route" as the high level bridge was (and is) weight-restricted.
