Preston (Old Tram Bridge)

A view from the top of the rope worked canal tramway incline in Preston. A winding house stood near this point to lift wagons up from the river bridge to a level where they could continue to the canal basin near the town centre. The incline closed in 1864 and has now been landscaped into the park features but the replica tramroad bridge over the Ribble can be seen through the trees in this view from December 2020.
