Shard Bridge is a bridge in the English county of Lancashire. It spans the River Wyre, connecting Singleton, on the southern side of the river, to Hambleton, on its northern side (known locally as " Over Wyre"), carrying both automotive and pedestrian traffic of Shard Road (the A588). The original bridge was built in 1864, and it went on to replace a ferry service between Stanah and Wardley's Creek further downstream to the west. The first of two modern incarnations of the bridge was rebuilt in 1993, moving the structure a few yards downstream. Formerly a toll bridge, Shard Bridge is now a free municipal crossing.
