Skeldergate Bridge
Skeldergate Bridge

The Grade II listed LinkExternal link bridge was built as a toll bridge between 1878 and 1880. It was reconstructed and strengthened in 1938. A small arch by the former tollhouse at the east end of the bridge was originally designed to open so that tall ships could sail up to the quays on either side of the river between Skeldergate and Ouse Bridges. Skeldergate Bridge which carries the inner ring road, the A1036 over the River Ouse was formally declared free of tolls on April 1, 1914.
