One of Preston’s Victorian railway bridges is being demolished and Bernie Blackburn caught these photos of the Network Rail works in action.Advertisement
During a walk on Saturday afternoon the Preston snapper got these stunning shots of the serious machinery employed to take out the Vicars Bridge.
It’s been standing since Victorian times but its finally going to see the scrap heap, its been there since 1848. The wobbly bailey bridge built by the Royal Engineers in the 1950s is due to stay.
