Salt Bridge, Staffordshire
Salt Bridge, Staffordshire
Bridge No 82 across the Trent and Mersey Canal carries a link lane between the A51 and Salt Road.
I do wonder about the intelligence of the decision taken some years back to plaster white paint over all the brickwork. It probably looked garish at the time, and condemns an attractive bridge to many years of looking scruffy when weathering causes the paint to begin flaking off. Maybe it was to protect crumbling brickwork, but it looks dreadful now.
