Ethelfleda Bridge, River Mersey

The bridge was built from 1864 to 1868, it spans 303ft over the river. The clearance below is 75ft so when in the towers we must have been close to 100ft high. The footway was closed in 1965 and you can tell that it hasn’t had much use by the track workers since.

Inside the towers, white painted graffiti and cut outs on the stone saying ‘MODS’ accompanied with a stack of dates and names was pretty cool!
