Station Road Viaduct, Cleckheaton
Station Road Viaduct, Cleckheaton
The viaduct, built by a railway company to carry highway loading of the day, is of an unusual design. Massive brick foundations support slender steel piers, which carry a steel frame deck. The viaduct is surmounted by heavy masonry parapets typical of railway design. Built to connect the station to the town centre, it is now only used as a footpath, and is apparently receiving minimal maintenance.
