Sowerby Bridge
The arches of the 17C stone bridge can be seen below the 19C widening. The first recorded bridge here was a wooden one in 1314. It was rebuilt in stone in the 16C and again in 1673 following severe damage by a flood. It was widened for the turnpike road in 1773 and further improved in 1823 and 1875. The green box on the right is probably a river level gauge.
