Cale Lane Bridge
Soon to be widened for the new massive housing estate at Kirkless
Yes it needs widening a flattening out, these old fashioned hump backs have had there day.
It must be terrible having all that noise for the local residents as the heavy lorrys bump over it
I have seen humpback bridges more humpbacked than that one Mick !
a bridge to far
Mick, I’m sure if you ask the Council nice enough, they will fill in the canal and make it into a cycle path . Walkers could stay as they are , fishermen could sing Dixie , boaters and barge owners could be given a remote model and a lake , and you could sing the sun has got his hat on as you rip up the middle . Just a suggestion . Thanks for the post Mick
I also like the barely visible details of the darkest of dark shadows and reflections, - Subtlety with a big shout.
Good photo Mick. I remember when the New Springs bridge was renovated, it was a shambles the hump was too severe and traffic gut hung up on their underframes. We had to get a bus from the Finger Post and get off at Woodfield St. then walk over the bridge and get another bus to Wigan. A right cock up.
