Leeds to Apperley Bridge (photo 20 of 96)

Unnamed bridge (Bridge 225F)



Unmamed it may be, and unloved. It is one of the few remaining examples of the Great Central Railway. Built by the Leeds & Thirsk Railway Company it later carried the Bradford, Thirsk and Hudderfield trains into the now disappeared terminus Station. All the "new developments" in the surround area are built or are being built on GCR land.

This viaduct formed the approach to Leeds Central station, but despite the name nothing to do with the Great Central Railway. It was jointly built by the Great Northern Railway, the North Eastern Railway the Lancashire and Yorkshire Railway and the London and North Western Railway. It was no longer required when in 1967 all train services in Leeds were run through Leeds City station.
