Stockport Viaduct Again

For our contribution on the first Monday of the month to Broer som Binder [Bridges between] we have gone again to Stockport to take another look at its famous viaduct.

Do check out my first post about the viaduct on January 5th, 2009

This month's photographs are from Wellington Road South, the main A6 road from London through Stockport and Manchester to Carlisle.

Underneath the massive viaduct is the busy Stockport Bus Station.

The rivers Tame and Goyt meet to the Northeast of Stockport Town Centre to form the Mersey which then flows under the town's Merseyway shopping centre to emerge here beside the bus station before making its 70 mile journey to Liverpool and the Irish Sea.

More details of and links to other participants to Broer som Binder can be found on Visual Norway.


  1. Definitely multi us area by and under the bridge! It was worth a re-visit.

    I ahve a different bridge this month and lots of photos and story to accompany it. Hope you will enjoy visiting and rading about it.

  2. The viaduct looks so good it's hard to imagine it was built 170 years ago. Must be designed well.

  3. I equally impresses each time you show some aspects of that viaduct. It is kind of bridge that is very uncommon over here (I can't remember seeing any that approaches it).

    And combined with a Bus station? Great.

    You don't need a "Ferry cross the Mersey"

  4. Yes, that`s a brigde for sure! Amazing :)
