River Esk, Whitby
The swing bridge has been here for over 100 years. It was commissioned by Whitby Urban District Council in 1906 to carry the 'A' class road across the Esk and provide the maximum width possible to river traffic. This vital dimension was 100 feet (30.48 metres) between the centres of the two piers. The structure was designed by Mr J Mitchell Moncrieff, of Newcastle-upon-Tyne, and constructed by engineers Heenan and Froude of Manchester (whose most iconic structure is Blackpool Tower).

This part of the river seems to be a favourite place to fish for crabs.
