The Poulton Penny Bridge

The Poulton Penny Bridge Toll House

 

The bridge was the only way people could Enter Wallasey by land until the Duke Street Bridges were added

 

Wallasey is Almost an Island

 

Times have now changed with the inclusion of Motorways & Tunnel

 

Smugglers would cross the Moss at Bidston From Mother Redcaps to the Ring O'Bells

 

Years later, a Guard was stationed at the Bridge to protect Wallasey from thieves venturing  over from Birkenhead North End in search of spoils in the Maritime area.
