Railway bridge, with viaduct and former bridge approximately 100 metres north
Bridge carrying Lancaster and Preston Railway over Fylde Road, with viaduct continued to bridge over course of former Lancaster Canal approximately 70 metres north.1840, by Joseph Locke, for Lancaster and Preston Junction Railway Company. Bridges of sandstone ashlar, viaduct of red brick and some engineering brick.
The bridge over Fylde Road is in triumphal-arch form, consisting of a wide elliptical arch in the centre and a round-headed arch each side, with banded rustication, emphatic impost bands (running through the passages), rusticated voussoirs and raised keystones, broad terminal piers, string course, and parapet. The viaduct continued from the north end is carried on seven semicircular arches (each with two tie-plates), and links with the bridge over the former canal (now filled in). This is also tripartite in form, having a wide elliptical arch in the centre, flanked by broad piers, and short rock-faced retaining walls at the sides, terminating in similar piers; the archway has a raised keystone, voussoirs, a band, and a parapet like those of the first bridge.
