Macclesfield Bridge


Macclesfield Bridge is more commonly known as 'Blow up Bridge'

At 3am on 2 October 1874, the boat Tilbury, carrying gunpowder to a quarry in the Midlands, exploded, demolishing the bridge and killing three people. Locals sprang from their beds, fearing an earthquake.   When the bridge was rebuilt, they turned the pillars around so that they offered a smooth surface for boats' towing ropes, Look out for the rope grooves on both sides of the pillars.
