Earlier this afternoon

On one bridge. looking at another two

I'm on Ferry Lane bridge (over the River Calder) on the road between Stanley & Altofts


The 'Bow-String' Aquaduct carries the Aire & Calder Navigation Canal. over the Calder
Grade 1 listed, built 1837 - 1839

There's a modern concrete aquaduct behind it, as there was a lot of bulk carriage on the canal, & the old bridge was suffering from hits by barges, the new one opened in the mid 1970s
Plus larger bulk-carrier barges were too close to the bottom of the 'tank', & could (feasibly) rupture it, allowing the Canal to empty into the river, & subsequent risks of the lack of (water) pressure contributing to collapses of the canal banks
