General notes:
The number contained in the bridge name above indicates the position of the bridge in the sequence of movable bridges on the Weaver, starting from Weston Point.

My thanks to Colin Edmondson, historian for the River Weaver Navigtion Society, for sharing his list of movable bridges that have existed on the Weaver. Colin's list is based on 10 years of research.

The original bridge was replaced with a new swing bridge in 1909, which is still in use.
