‪This was the first transporter bridge for the railways in the world. It was built in 1916 but not used since 1964. Saw it whilst visiting a car showroom in Latchford. Looks very impressive from another bridge crossing the river ‬

Ian, your photo is of the disused High level railway bridge over the Manchester Ship Canal. The transporter is behind Bank Quay Station over the Merseyside. Have a look at the visit the bridge tab on our website. Thanks for your interest

‪An excellent structure with a brilliant "Friends of" doing all they can to make it public, with lots of information and directions on their website. Not many of these left around the world, so make a visit while you can.‬

‪Visited via the chemical works route today, wow what great engineering, pity it’s in need of such restoration - many years of neglect by its owners. The public footpath from the bridge to the Walton area is totally overgrown. With Giant Hogweed invading the path I turned back and returned through the chemical works. Warrington Borough Council have a diamond in the rough but seem to be doing all they can to restrict access and allow the bridge to silently decompose.‬

‪Trekked to this to gander at a local -& it seems a general - rarity. 3 possible routes to it. Two are described on the Bridge’s website, either from Slutchers Lane or following the green line through the chemical works from Old Liverpool Road. You can also park further to the bridge’s south on Eastford Road, take the pedestrian walkway crossing over the first railway bridge and then follow the riverside footpath up the east bank of the Mersey from there. Word of warning though, just after passing the bridge to the south of the Bridge I saw some Giant Hogweed which stopped me walking all the way down from Old Liverpool Road to Eastford Road as I personally planned - it was pretty much ON the path, so I had to head back! Nasty stuff!‬

Glad you avoided the giant hogweed. It is OK through the works

‪This is a trip that is not for the faint hearted . It took us two visits before we actually got to the bridge and that was with the assistance of a man from a nearby car park. If you follow the sign down Slutchers Lane for the Transporter bridge you have to follow the road right up to the Animal Welfare car park. From there you follow an Un signposted rough path which is seemingly going away from the bridge. Follow the photos I’ve put on past a locked gate down under the road bridge nearby and walk along the bank of the River Mersey . The Bridge is spectacular so huge and evocative of a past industrial era . Shame it’s neglected and shame the access is so tricky but it’s well worth the trip . ‬

Sorry you found it difficult to find. The route through the works is much easier. Please see the Visit the Bridge tab on our website. You can find it via Google. We are working towards getting it better known and eventually restored. Thanks for your interest.

‪What a stunning piece of engineering. Luckily I work literally 30 seconds walk away from the bridge. Never tire of wandering up for a look. Starting to show its age now and is well overdue a restoration job. Hopefully someone from WBC is listening!‬

‪My mate, Steve came to see me and stayed at the nearby Village hotel. You can see the Transporter bridge from there, we walked both routes. Yes, it is unique, No there is no shop or 'experience'. Yes, it is tricky to get close too (one side only). If you like industrial sites you'll love it. Yes, you can touch it, though Steve didn't get that emotional. Previous reviews here will give you the flavour of the place but access is complicated - of course you can see this large item! Even so it took me a couple of recces to check it down.
1) Animal rescue route. This is the 'brown sign' route from Wilson Patten Street. You are on Slutchers Lane. Go first right, after the railway bridge and follow the signs for the RSPCA and Warrington Animal Welfare next to it. You'll pass over the old railway tracks to the bridge, which you can see on the right. From the Animal Rescue car park head for the far corner of it AWAY from the bridge. You will see a path and the bridge that replaces the Transporter bridge. You will be going on the towpath underneath this bridge. There is a set of steps to the towpath at the end of the path. Go down these and head for the Transporter Bridge. It's no more than a 10 minute walk but wear 'strong shoes' (as my Mum would say) or walking boots.
2) More (to me at least) exciting railway route . Find LIDL as a reference point. You will also see a large pink building with an eye written on, locally known unsurprisingly as the 'pink eye'. This building is on the other side of the freight only railway line from Warrington to Fiddlers Ferry. There is a level crossing with a signal box (a rare treat for trainspotters) these days. Walk across and turn SHARP left. You will see a narrow path, fenced railway line to the left and containers 2 high to the right. After about 50 yards you will go to the 'sunny' uplands of the walking route marked by a green painted line. You'll also see another (unused) signal box for the internal road. The green line will take you through the industrial site. It is the best chance for wheelchair access provided you can get through the initial narrow path.
Enjoy.‬

Thank you for the candid and helpful review. One day there may be a visitor centre but up until then we just need people to join the Friends and help us keep on campaigning.

‪the Warrington Transporter Bridge is no longer operational but as the only remaining rail transporter bridge in the world it is well worth a visit. Most of the structure is still there, the cable are still attached to the gondola which can easily be seen on the other side of the river. I wish those hoping to save the bridge the best of luck. ‬

Many thanks for a great review. We are confident that one day it will be working again but don't hold your breath. We know it is well worth restoring.

Thanks for your review. It is not in as bad a shape as you think as the 2017 full engineering survey gave it a few years yet. We are working with Warrington Borough Council towards its eventual restoration
