Ringley Old Bridge is an ancient stone bridge in Kearsley near Bolton, England[1] which crosses the River Irwell, linking Ringley with Stoneclough. It has two large semi-circular arches, and a third smaller arch, for the tow path.[2] It is a Grade II structure, listed on 19 August 1986.[3]

It was built in 1677, at a cost of £500. It replaced a wooden bridge, swept away by flood in 1673.[4]
