Bridge Street leads up to the Market Place and was once part of the main north-south route through the town. Traffic from the north would have descended from Dodge Hill/Lancashire Hill down Tiviot Dale to Lancashire Bridge.
Lancashire bridge over the river Mersey is now underneath the foreground paving stones and has been so since the 1930s when the river was culverted beneath the Merseyway roadway and later by the Merseyway Shopping Centre which lies to the right.
The Laura Ashley shop on the corner of Warren Street is built on the site of the former Warren Bulkeley Arms.
