Name that bridge..it's now called Knight's Way Bridge
New (2006) bridge across the River Aire now the subject of a competition to name that bridge. Now named, quote from Pennine waterway's website.
'5th November 2007, British Waterways invited suggestions for a name from local communities, schoolchildren or individuals.
The winning name was thought up by ten-year old Maria Anderson, from Leeds, and will appear on a plaque to be mounted on the bridge.
The winning name - Knight's Way Bridge - won the votes of the panel of judges, made up of representatives from British Waterways, Leeds City Council, The Clarence Dock Company Ltd and the Royal Armouries Museum. Maria thought of the name because it was close to the Royal Armouries Museum.'
