|||Leeds and Liverpool Canal, Lodge Bridge (Calverley)
View shows Lodge Bridge, a swing bridge spanning the Leeds and Liverpool Canal, numbered 215. This bridge is believed to have been built solely for the farmer of Lodge Farm, beside Lodge Wood, to access his fields on the other side, which had become inaccessible after the canal was built in the late 1700s. A young woman stands on the bridge wearing a fashionable mini-length coat.
