Tavern Swing Bridge

Photographed just beyond the current limit of navigation of the Ravenhead Branch, this is where the canal once passed from where the white vehicle is just visible at the left of photo, the keeping the rounded end building on its left it passed straight into the distance just to the right of centre along what is now called Canal Street.

It may be hard to imagine, but Tavern Swing Bridge once crossed the canal in the middle of this photo.
