Marshall's bridge over the Hol Beck
Marshall's bridge over the Hol Beck
There are many little bridges over this channelled river (a minor tributary of the river Aire in Leeds) but this particular cast iron one, bearing the date 1849, is listed grade 2 (list entry 1255738).

The listing gives a historical note: "Marshall's mill properties were developed southwards, away from the original mill, as far as the Temple Mill, completed in 1843 TG2712 : Door into the Picket Post ... The construction of [this] bridge coincides with the establishment of the line of Globe Road by 1850, but at that date Marshall's property was the only complex between the Hol Beck and the canal. By 1866 Marshall's had ceased to use the buildings north of the bridge ... The bridge therefore dates from the final use of the north side of Hol Beck by Marshall's Flax Mill; the firm closed in 1886."
