Completed as a cast iron arch bridge in 1869. Designed by John Fraser. The contractor was Archibald Neill of Bradford, and the ironwork was supplied by J. Cliff and Son of Bradford.[1]

Now only the original outer pairs of arch ribs are cast iron, the inner five being steel replacements for four original arches. The original inner arch ribs were each assembled from four castings, while the middle 52 ft long lection was fabricated from wrought iron plate.
