Photo-a-Day (Thursday, 23rd January, 2020)
The Old Swing Bridge
Looks very neglected
It is neglected Peter like a lot of things on the Leeds Liverpool canal
But having said that the farmer still uses it to get his tractor across, it easily opens with a bit of a tug.
You can see it being used on this excellent historical video below
A lovely photo Mick, enjoyed looking at it.
Bring back Brian's photos.
Bring back D Tease photos. PLEASE
I wouldn't like to drive a tractor over that bridge, it looks really unsafe! The background is a lovely scene though, very calm and peaceful.
As you say Mick excellent video, I've passed that pull across bridge a few times but never seen it working before
