Replacement Lancashire Bridge plaque

A Lancashire Bridge replacement blue plaque has been reinstated.

In 2000, we at Stockport Heritage Trust, funded 12 new blue plaques for Stockport for the Millennium. They were chosen by a public vote and were funded by a Heritage Fund lottery grant.
A Lancashire Bridge plaque, identical to the above one, was displayed on the pavement, above the centre of the River Mersey, which was below flowing under the old bridge. Unfortunately it was mounted on a flimsy SMBC stand, and predictably, was stolen within a couple of weeks.

The new Merseyway bridge is finally finished and is resplendent with a replacement plaque :
