Site of proposed new bridge, Hope Mill
A new high-level fixed road bridge is to be constructed at this site to give access to the industrial units once the canal is reinstated. The canal line runs across the picture and alongside the nearest industrial unit. To get the required headroom under the bridge, Hope Mill Lock will be re-constructed to the east of the new bridge. Currently it lies buried about 50m or so to the left of the picture. This location is also known as 'Ironworks'.
