Priory Bridge Ironwork

These 2 photos were taken in 2014 and show the ironwork on the Priory Bridge, just off Glasgow Road. The redundant bridge over the River Calder isn’t in the best condition and these iron stanchions supporting the upper extended deck and parapets look to be fairly rusty.

The ironwork was placed when the bridge was extended to allow trams to pass each other above, well over a hundred years ago.

Alex Orr I remember climbing up and down these when I was a young boy. Don’t think I could do it now.
