Wheatley's Bridge, Mirfield
Wheatley's Bridge, Mirfield
Named after Thomas Wheatley, as it carried the driveway to his house, Cote Walls. However the bridge is shown on the township map of 1819, when it was on a field access track following the watercourse down from Huddersfield Road. The driveway must have been constructed between then and 1850, or probably before 1840 when the Leeds and Manchester Railway was constructed. The bridge crosses the Shepley Bridge Cut, which opened in 1776.
