Inventory: Lists | Log | References | Condensed | Search

This is a list of all 4 bridges from the suspension bridge inventory crossing River Wharfe. Please note that different rivers with the same name will be grouped together. For example, selecting 'Bear Creek' shows bridges across several different Bear Creeks. Also, similarly named rivers are grouped separately. For example, 'River Dee' (UK) bridges are grouped separately from 'Dee River' (Australia) bridges. Wherever you see a "Bridgemeister ID" number you can click it to isolate the bridge on its own page.

Notes
  • Refurbished, 1989.
  • John Gardner writes that William Bell was the village blacksmith and that the bridge once had an unusual mid-span support pillar. John writes: "It is not known when [the pillar] was dismantled, but the bottom section (you can see the dividing flange in the linked picture) can still be seen in normal water conditions."
  • John Gardner later added: "[the bridge] was badly damaged by floods on December 14th 1936. It was reconstructed with the span a little higher, which was when the supporting pillar was removed."
