The canal and tower by Moore Lane swing bridge featured in the film 'YANKS' plus local farming character Percy Leah from Ellesmere Road, Walton, and his flock of sheep (wondered if Percy and livestock were paid extras ??) The pic of the bridge from the railway viaduct shows another crossing of the canal inbetween which must have been a temporary structure as there is nothing between road and rail crossings present day. Can you shed any light on this Algy ?

Correct Pedro, a temporary contractors bridge, they built them up and down the canal, it would have been erected prior to the swing bridge being available.
