If you walk a little beyond Linney's Bridge you reach an area where the River Dean meanders along between Lacey Green and Styal Prison. The panorama below shows just how much the river does bend. The viaduct carries the branch line from Wilmslow to Styal and beyond.
|The perspective can be a bit confusing - this is a 360 degree view with the camera on what will soon become an island in a big bend in the river.|
|The River Dean with the viaduct beyond. Walk under the viaduct and you are heading towards Linney's Bridge.|
