Footbridge over River Calder, Stanley Ferry
Footbridge over River Calder, Stanley Ferry
This looks as though it may have once carried a railway track, but apparently it wasn't. I have been told that its true purpose is a trash screen bridge to protect the aqueduct from damage when the R. Calder is in spate - see LinkExternal link
Thanks to Mike Kirby for the information.

It is beside SE3523 : Aqueduct and River Calder, Stanley Ferry, Wakefield
