Bingley Weir and Ireland Bridge
Bingley Weir and Ireland Bridge
Bingley was founded at a ford on the River Aire, probably in Saxon times. This crossing gave access to Harden, Cullingworth and Wilsden on the south side of the river. The ford was superseded by Ireland Bridge In mediæval times.

The present bridge is grade II*-listed as “a large elegant well-preserved bridge in virtually unaltered condition” (ENGLISH HERITAGE BUILDING ID: 337905 LinkExternal link British Listed Buildings). It was rebuilt in 1686 and the parapet may be eighteenth century.
