Darcy Lever Viaduct

Built on stone piers, this eight-span iron structure from 1848 featured very early examples of lattice girders. These were renewed between 1881 and 1883. The deck stands 80 feet above the river and conveyed the Bolton-Bury line over the River Tonge. Although the line had closed some 13 years earlier, the viaduct was only deemed non-operational as recently as 1983.
