The look of this old style bridge is spoiled by those modern crash barriers.

Another lovely autumn scene. Not sure when this would have been taken but the leaves are hanging on this year giving us some beautiful colours.
Thanks Neil.

I agree with Mick on barriers ,but it's still a good un .

It's hard to believe all the glorious Autumn tints are a result of 'dying back'! Reminds me to shovel some leaves up for next years compost! Another lovely picture David.

Lovely photo, what runs under the bridge?

Comment by: Dave b on 19th November 2016 at 11:28

The barriers were installed years ago when the Lombard RAC Rally had a stage through the plantations,good photo David.

Comment by: Garry on 19th November 2016 at 13:20

It would be good to take a photo now, and then in Spring, of the same spot.

The canal or the river Douglas Alex.
I can't remember which one.

Comment by: Mick on 19th November 2016 at 16:20

Alex it not the canal or the Dougie it was the old railway line

Ann you have to walk if youv not got a bike

Comment by: jj on 19th November 2016 at 16:25

Surely it was the Whelley Loop (railway) line that ran under the bridge?

Comment by: Alan on 19th November 2016 at 17:48

No, its the miniature railway that once ran under the bridge and not water.

Comment by: Ann on 19th November 2016 at 18:13

Ok, walk or bike, but how do you get to it!!!

Comment by: Grandmas on 19th November 2016 at 18:27

It was the railway line which ran under this bridge.

Comment by: tuddy on 19th November 2016 at 19:23

The bridge passes over the old Whelley loop line.

Ann, there are several ways to get to the bridge, you could enter the plantations at the gates opposite Wigan infirmary, and follow the tarmac road for about a mile. Or you could follow the road away from the front of Haigh Hall, after you pass over the canal bridge the railway bridge is about half a mile further down the road.
