Yes, that section of road into Gressingham is part of the Lancashire Cycleway. Like most of the Lancashire Cycleway it's a narrow country road rather than a cyclepath. The road closure is for Town Bridge, a minor bridge at the west of the village, not the main bridge over the Lune (which very unhelpfully is what they show in the photo on the WotR site), so there should be no problem coming this way into the village and crossing the river to Hornby.

+1 to Bicycler's suggestion.
Yes the bridge shown on the WoR website is Loyn Bridge. :roll:

Ah, thanks for that! The diversion signs on the ground don't make it clear either.
