If my memory serves me well, that bridge was built by a local farmer to allow access to their farm, primarily for milk trucks, avoiding the long route into Silsden and under the culvert. At a time when Belton Road did not exist.If this is the case will not ownership of and responsibilty for the bridge have passed to the current owners of that land?
