If you wanted to jump on the train at this point then this is the ideal place for Brierfield station. Just cross over the bridge and the station with level crossing is approx 100yds on the left.
sorry m8 that's not right.. this is the bridge at the bottom of victoria street in nelson (across from whitefield school)
AC Canal Planner unsurprisingly calls it 'Nelson Bridge'
Yes this is the bridge at the bottom of victoria street and i remember happy days playing here in the 1950s with my friends and family
