Yorkshire Street, Burnley, Lancashire
Looking eastwards along Yorkshire Street we see it dominated by the aqueduct carrying the Leeds and Liverpool Canal. This structure dates, not from the original opening of the waterway, but from 1927. Even by the 1890s, the original aqueduct which was slightly further to the east, was found to be unduly constricting to traffic along the street, so side arches were bored in that year to take the pedestrian traffic: this, however, was not a sufficient solution, as all the room on the road was taken up by the double track of tramway that was then in situ. So in 1927 this entirely new structure was put in place and the old aqueduct demolished.
Beyond the aqueduct can be seen the Princess Royal pub, and beyond that is St. Mary's Roman Catholic church.
