Theres a date stone under the bridge saying 1816 this is because it was the last section of the canal to be built and in doing so the Leeds section and the Liverpool section joined up in Wigan

Tom if you wander a bit further down the canal towards Wigan, pass under the L and Y line and reach the Westcoast Mainline bridge you can see the original 2 track bridge from the 1830s built into the current railway bridge.

A lovely photo, Tom. My "babies' class" teacher, as we used to say before it was Reception, from Ince Central, later taught at Britannia Bridge School, and one of her little infants, when asked what school she went to, said "Pretend You're a Bridge School"! She really thought that was what it was called!
