Church Bridge

The original bridge was destroyed by floods in 1857 and was replaced with wrought-iron girders. Those girders became unsafe by 1994 and were then replaced in 1995 by this bridge re-located from Ripon. The bridge was cast in 1847 at Joseph Butler's Stanningley Iron Works, near Leeds, for a railway at Ripon. However, closure of that line enabled the bridge to be repaired and re-located here complete with Victorian railings and converted gas lamps.
