Pilling Lane canal bridge, Lydiate – Latest news

Repairs works to the bridge and canal are going well with the canal being open once again.

However, on 17th April the road over the bridge was still closed pending completion of the works.

These two photos show recent activity. The first one is of the canal empty of water on 31st March with a digger where water would normally be. The second was taken on 17th April as work progressed.

This last shot shows the new pedestrian steps taking shape.

Almost there after months of campaigning for the work to be done.
