Bridge over the Bradley Fold Cycleway
Bridge over the Bradley Fold Cycleway
A view of the bridge which takes the A665 (Radcliffe Moor Road) over the route of the former Liverpool and Bury (later Lancashire and Yorkshire) Railway.

The Liverpool and Bury Railway was formed in 1845. In 1847, it was incorporated into the Lancashire and Yorkshire Railway and from 1922, until nationalisation, was part of the London, Midland and Scottish Railway.

The line between Bolton and Bury was closed in 1970 and part of the route, as here, is now a footpath although it has been built over in other places (LinkExternal link - Heywood Advertiser).

SD7508 : Bradley Fold, for Little Lever, Station shows the nearby Bradley Fold Station as it was in 1963.
