Wesham Railway Bridge

The railway bridge crosses the Preston to Blackpool railway and you come across it just after leaving Kirkham and Wesham Station. This is a new bridge which was put into place about three years ago to replace a very old cast iron bridge. It was a major engineering achievement and quite a sight to see the old bridge being lifted out and craned away.

The view is from the front bedroom window of my house. On the far side of the bridge are the Kingfisher pub, some small office units, and Smiths Electrical Services. Beyond that, and out of sight, is the the St. George’s Park residential development.
As with other scenes this place has many memories especially of my children playing football and flying kites on the open green area.
