Is this the bridge on which a scene from Foyle's War was filmed?

No the scene wasnt on this bridge but the old iron bridge that goes over the canal at haigh hall.

Irene I got it wrong , Eddie is correct with the canal bridge.

Have you seen The Daily Telegraph today, on page 12 there is a photo of Lynda Easton in her 1940s kitchen, she and her partner live a vintage lifestyle and he won the title of Mr Vintage 2019 at the annual Twinwood vintage festival at Bedford.

Forgotten and lost ,
memories cost ,
No- one noticed your dying death ,
Who cares less me or you ,
Pictures taken a chosen few
All but memory , here and now ,
I am present but dead somehow .
Just a bridge that a train ran through
just a memory me and you .
Cast a flame , point a wand ,
Once it’s living , then it’s gone ..
So progress wins for all to see,
the rule of life we know is free
but what’s the point when we take away ,
the things that matter everyday .
Forever bowing to the progress will ,
To rip apart my memories still .
So who am I to make a claim
Against a progress who rejects my name ..

This is a good angle, great photo. The most handsome bridge in Wigan? Renovation repairs some years ago. Would like to know more about this bridge.
