    After having spent the day exploring Collingwood Dock and Hanson Aggregates, the Nelson Swing Bridge was next on my list. This is located next to Hanson Aggregates and is obviously used, or once used, for transport of either heavy machinery or vehicles due to the reinforced materials used in its creation. The swing bridge also acts as one point of access to the Nelson Dock and leads to the Clock Tower located next to the River Mersey.

    I was unable to find any information regarding this specific bridge, however a swing bridge is normally a movable bridge that lends its primary structural support to a vertical locating pin and support ring, both of which were visible in regards to this specific swing bridge.











    Cheers for looking :thumb
