SE3033SW BRIDGE END 714-1/78/57 Leeds Bridge 08/05/74


Road bridge over River Aire. 1870-73. By T Dyne Steel, engineer. Steel buckle plate deck supported on wrought-iron internal arch ribs of compound riveted section; cast-iron fascia arch ribs, rusticated ashlar abutments. Segmental arch with scrolled motif in spandrels, parapet with interlocking circles and moulded rail; coat of arms of Leeds at centre. The oldest crossing point in the town, the site of the medieval and later cloth markets and until 1818 the only dry crossing of the river. The Aire was bridged at 5 other points between 1818 and 1870 but it was estimated (c1869) that each Saturday 4,000 vehicles and 55,000 foot passengers crossed Leeds Bridge into the town. The cost of replacement was more than ยป50,000 and many of the buildings on the approach roads south of the river were replaced at that time.
