Ashton Swing Bridge (Preston)

The very distinctive control tower at Preston Dock, with a bitumen train hauled by Sentinel 4wDM Progress passing on 12th September 2016. The tower controls the road barriers for the bridge, for an adjacent level crossing, railway points for the sand drags on either side and also the bridge swing mechanism. See image 23257
