A Tunnel and Three Bridges

By Alan_Baseley  
One for Film Friday.
1978, preparing for the demolition of the Victorian stone arched bridge in order to construct the 2nd carriageway of the A629 Elland By-pass. One carriageway had been built and traffic had been diverted on to the new concrete bridge allowing the demolition to take place.
The third bridge, with a signal at either end carries the railway over the River Calder and the Calder & Hebble Navigation.

I love the symmetry of these old rail and canal bridges and its sad the real nuts and bolts of the Norths industrial heritage has had to go.....my old fella once said to me that you know you are getting old when you realize little or nothing has changed for the better.....not far off sadly!

I wish I'd taken more pictures of things that have disappeared between then and now...
