SJ9694 : Brookfold Bridge

taken 7 years ago, near to Gee Cross, Tameside, Great Britain

Brookfold Bridge
Brookfold Bridge
Brookfold Bridge carried the Godley Junction to Apethorn railway line over Brookfold Lane. The old trackbed is now a footpath SJ9694 : View along the old track but this section is not part of the Trans Pennine Trail. Access to the trail westwards is best made via Firethorn Drive SJ9694 : Firethorn Drive, Godley and a squeeze stile SJ9694 : A Tight Squeeze. Access southwards is best made by carrying on up the lane and through a gate SJ9694 : Gate to Green Lane on to a track that leads to Green Lane. Climbing up the side of the bridge SJ9694 : Brookfold Lane from Brookfold Bridge is not recommended.

Update (April 2016). I understand this has now been blocked at the bottom by a metal fence.
