Location - HEBDEN BRIDGE, YORKSHIRE - The TRESTLE BRIDGE, was an amazing structure built mainly of wood and was part of the Blakedown Railway. This 3' 0" gauge track took the railway across the tops of Hardcastle Crags, to assist in the contruction of three new reservoirs at Walshaw Dean. The bridge was 105 feet high and 700 feet long. Note the very ricketty supply track in the foreground. Built by William Henry Cockcroft (Architect) and George Greenwood (Engineer), this structure withstood all that the Pennine winters could throw at it until it was demolished in 1912 after completion of the reservoirs - Job Done!.
