Swing Bridge at Thwaite Mills
Stourton. View of the iron swing bridge which crosses the River Aire at Thwaite Mills. It connected the Hunslet Goods Yard rail line to Stourton Goods Yard. The lock-keeper's house is visible in the background left of centre. The bridge was demolished in 1977 although the circular stone pivet still stands. A Morris traveller is parked in front of it.
