River Irwell, Warth Bridge
Looking along the River Irwell, towards Warth Bridge. The bridge was built in the 1930s to carry the (then) new road route (Bury Road) between Radcliffe and Bury. It crosses the Irwell just downstream of Bealey's weir.
River Irwell
The River Irwell rises on the Rossendale hills north of Bacup and flows south for 39 miles before joining the River Mersey west of Manchester. It was a very important river in the development of industry, during the Industrial revolution, in Lancashire.
