Meccano Bridge & Picnic Area, Nob End, Little Lever, Bolton

The Meccano Bridge replaces a basic wooden bridge that allowed boatmen and horses to cross the top chamber of the (Nob End) Prestolee flight of locks on the Manchester, Bury and Bolton Canal, where the towpath changes sides.

As with the bridge, the picnic benches are made from the 10x-scaled pieces of Meccano. 


Plenty of restoration work still to be done.
