Knowsthorpe Swing Bridge, River Aire
18th November 1999. This area was previously known as Knostrop and the image shows the joining of the Aire and Calder navigation Knostrop cut in the centre with the river Aire on the right. The machanisms seen in the foreground are used to operate the swing bridge and flood gate. The red brick building on the left of the river is a disused warehouse. A sign in the centre of the image gives directions to Leeds for barges.

In my research of over 2,000 movsble bridges in the British Isles for my hobby website www.movablebridges.org.uk Knowsthorpe Swing Bridge appears to be of a unique design and it is a great pity that it is being allowed to rot away. I visited the site in May 2010 and the deck planks are in a very poor state.
