Broadheath Bridge No 30

Can anybody tell me about 'The battle of Broadheath Bridge' I was brought up in Timperly Cheshire and my father was in the Home Guard during the second world war and stationed in the Altrincham area. Before his death he told a very funny story about being on guard on Broadheath Bridge, which was on a main military route at that time.
