Northenden Bridge carries Palatine Road over the river Mersey to the South of Manchester. I'm not certain about the age of this bridge but suspect it dates from about the turn of the 19th century give or take a decade.
This is the view from underneath the Palatine Road bridge at the M60 Manchester Orbital motorway which crosses both the river and Palatine Road on a nine-span viaduct.
This is looking from underneath the motorway. Northenden bridge can be seen on the right and the scale can be judged by looking at the pedestrians on Palatine Road crossing under the motorway on the other side.
The last view looks back at both the motorway bridge and Northenden bridge beyond it.
You can see them in the photograph on sithenah which also includes a view of the heron sculpture featured here recently.
Next week I'll show you the footbridge from which that photograph was taken.
