One for Film Friday.
Exposed 19th century brick arch on the A629 over the former Lancashire & Yorkshire Railway Calder Valley Line at Elland Wood Bottom ready to be demolished to make way for one of the new carriageways of the Elland by-pass.
Half the new bridge had been built and traffic was diverted on to the new carriageway to allow the arch to be broken up and dropped on to the railway during a weekend closure of the line.

It looks a substantial construction, probably Victorian so built to last!
