Barnsley Canal - Clay Royd Bridge

About 7.5 km from the River Calder, Blue Bridge (built 1828) is set in the middle of Haw Park. It is in better condition than Clay Royd Bridge, although the tow path had collapsed beneath the bridge,and was restored as part of the Trans Pennine Trail.

This is the last bridge, from the direction of Walton, before the canal reaches Cold Hiendley Reservoir.
