Calverley Pack Horse Bridge, Rodley, Leeds :: Shared Description

Standing here in 1846, a huge fulling mill would have been
clearly visible on the left bank of the river along with a weir stretching across the water
from the mill to the opposite bank. This weir was originally built in
1710 by Sir Walter Calverley, at the same time that the current
bridge was erected. However, both structures had to be rebuilt in
1775, after the weir was badly damaged in a storm. All that remains of the weir and
Calverley Mill today are pieces of dressed stone, littering the bank and river bed. Turn
around, and look over the opposite side of the bridge. The mill race can still be seen, forming an island in the middle of
the river Aire.
