Swinging Barton Road Bridge

Swinging Barton Road Bridge

Passing along the Leigh branch of the Bridgewater Canal towards Worsley, you come to that wonder of the waterways, the Barton Swing Aqueduct. When we arrived this time, it was standing open, and a call to the canal office established that a boat was due to pass. In due course, a gang arrived and swung the road bridge alongside.
