Swing Bridge at Thwaite Mills (Stourton) (1 comment)
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.

Swing Bridge, Thwaite Mills (Stourton)
c. 1900. View of the swing bridge across the Aire and Calder Navigation at Thwaite Mills. Several people in period dress stand on and around the bridge and a wooden crane can be seen beyond the bridge. Alongside is a pennyman's hut. A man would earn a living taking a penny from every boat he let through the bridge.
