The Dirty Mile bridge"

Dirty Mile, Buckley


The gas lamp, made in Wrexham, was the last in Buckley. When it was taken down, it was broken by mistake. I remember a gas lamp in Coppa View.

About 1950, at least three Crosville buses over six years collided with the roof of the bridge resulting in large warning notices being placed on the bridge.
