This photograph shows the Barton Road Swing Bridge over the Manchester Ship Canal, taken from the Bridgewater Canal Aqueduct, which stands alongside this bridge and carried the Bridgewater Canal over the MSC. The swing bridge used to be a source of frustration in the 1960s before the new Barton High Level Road Bridge (M60) was opened. Many motorists hurrying to work would find the bridge swung, and their way into Trafford Park held up, making them late for work.
