The bridge pictured here with Wainhouse Tower in the background.
Gas Works Road Bridge is a Grade II listed river crossing at Sowerby Bridge. The bridge was built in 1816 by Aydon and Elwell and is made of cast iron and steel with stone supports, it was widened in 1850. The bridge was granted grade II listed status on July 19th 1988.
The bridge allows access by foot but the wooden walkways are now closed off to prevent access by pedestrians with only the central tarmacked roadway accessible. The bridge has been closed to traffic for as long as I can remember and is in a sorry state of repair for a listed building, Calderdale Council should hang there head in shame.
Gas Works Road Bridge is situated at the bottom of Chapel Lane and connects it with Holmes Road. The Bridge crossers the River Calder.
