Date:1950 - 1955 (c.)

Description:Walton Bridge carrying Stafford Road over the River Trent. Although much altered, remnants of the medieval stone pack horse bridge can still be seen. The postcard publisher has mistakenly identified it as the bridge over the Trent and Mersey Canal. Since the New Walton Bridge opened in 1984 the old stone-built bridge has only been used by pedestrians.

The church in the distance is St. Michael's, built in 1758 on the site of an earlier Augustinian Priory.
