Former railway bridge over the A59 at Aintree
Once a two-track railway line through Aintree Race Course station on the far side of the bridge, now part of NCN62.
Liverpool Extension Line (NCN62)

Opened in 1879/80 by the Cheshire Lines Committee, this important freight artery ran from Hunts Cross on the Liverpool to Manchester line northwards to Aintree, where it met lines from various directions. Although principally a freight line, there was some local passenger traffic and it also served as a useful route for charter trains to Aintree race course.

The line closed in 1975, and since the 1980s it has formed part of Sustrans' National Cycle Network route 62 (Fleetwood to Selby).
