Footbridge over the River Calder, Rastrick to Clifton
This bridge links the 19C industrial area along River Street, Rastrick with the 20C estate on Clifton Ings. It was a private vehicular/pedestrian bridge built by Blakeborough's to link their works and offices in Birds Royd and River Street to their Sherwood Works on the Armytage Road Industrial Estate. After the demise of Blakeborough's the bridge was considered as a possible river crossing to by-pass the town centre but it was judged too expensive to bring up to required standard for volume of traffic that would use it.
