Leeds and Liverpool Canal, Lodge Bridge (Calverley)
Colour image6th August 2011. View shows swing bridge no. 215 over the Leeds and Liverpool Canal. Also known as Lodge Bridge, it was built solely for the use of the farmer of Lodge Farm to access his fields on the other side of the canal, and it is believed there is no public right of way over it, unlike most of the caal bridges. The bridge is still in place today (2014) and still used by the farmer. It is normally kept in the 'open to canal traffic' position by the farmer and only closed when he needs to cross his fields.
