Gas Works Bridge, Sowerby Bridge

Gas Works Road Bridge crossers the River Calder near to the town of Sowerby Bridge, West Yorkshire.

The original bridge was built in 1816 by Samuel Aydon and William Elwell and this is largely hidden from view by the widening that took place about 1850. The bridge was built for carriages and later cars but is now only accessible by pedestrians. I believe it was closed to traffic in the early 1980's due to a weakness in the structure but I have been unable to confirm this.

My Pictures were taken using a Polaroid iS2132 Bridge Camera or a Nikon d3300 SLR Camera. There are a total of 14 pictures that can be seen either on Flickr, here or exclusive to Clickasnap. They were taken in November 2014 and 15 as well as July 2017.
