Maudland Bridge

Work continues (slowly) on what appears to be an extension to a university car park at Maudland Bridge, and it seems the rails of the old Longridge branch are being covered rather than lifted. This Christmas Day view from Leighton Street looks down onto the old Lancaster Canal overbridge with the entrance to Miley Tunnel beyond. Maudland Curve signal box, which controlled access to Maudland Goods, stood immediately beyond the canal bridge where the railings are now, but with a church as a backdrop rather than the modern UCLAN building seen here.
