After a long campaign may I congratulate the Canal & River Trust for the work they have done to restore the historic Pilling Lane stone bridge and the steps that lead up from the canal tow path to Pilling Lane, in Lydiate. This is right next to the headquarters of Mersey Motor Boat Club.

I have commented on this project quite a number of times over the past couple of years so it is great to see it all come to fruition. Below is a shot of the huge bolts that run from one side of the bridge to the other to stop it ‘spreading’ sideways.
