Tram bridge over the Sheffield & Tinsley Canal
Tram bridge over the Sheffield & Tinsley Canal
The bridge carries the yellow tram route from the centre of Sheffield (to the left) to Meadowhall. This section of the tram route appears to be purpose built; the tram joins the older mainline alignment shortly after crossing the canal. The people in the picture are Geograph-ers on a walk on the day before the 2012 Geograph conference.
Sheffield and Tinsley Canal
The Sheffield and Tinsley Canal was opened in 1814 to carry boats between the navigable River Don at Tinsley and a new basin close to the heart of Sheffield. Before this date, goods had to be carried over poor roads to Tinsley Wharf on the River Don. LinkExternal link
