River Wyre, Shard Bridge
River Wyre, Shard Bridge
Shard Bridge spans the River Wyre, connecting Singleton, on the southern side of the river, to Hambleton, on its northern side (known locally as "Over Wyre"), carrying Shard Road (the A588).

Built in 1864 to replace a ferry service between Stanah and Wardley's Creek (further downstream to the west), the original iron toll bridge served for nearly 130 years in its distinctive yellow colour scheme. It was finally superseded in 1993 when a new bridge was built a good few metres downstream of the original bridge. This concrete replacement bridge is now a toll-free municipal crossing.
